In this paper, the Lomax-Modified Weibull distribution with five parameters is introduced as a new generalization of Modified Weibull distribution introduced by Sarhan and Zaindin (2009). Some properties of the new distribution are obtained. Estimation of the five unknown parameters will be discussed in the view of the likelihood and Bayesian principals. Also, a numerical example is provided.

Keywords :

Bayesian estimation; lomax-modified weibull(L-MW) distribution; maximum likelihood estimates.
