Abstract: The Laplace distribution (LD) has many applications in Engineering, Finance, Economics and Astronomy. Several representations of the continuous Laplace distribution are given in Kotz et al. (2001). Aly (2018) proposed and studied a unified approach for developing Laplace-type distributions using a random sign transformation (RST) and a random sign mixture transformation (RSMT). Recently, some discrete Laplace-type distributions have been developed and studied in the literature. These distributions are essentially obtained as the difference of two independent integer-valued random variables. This thesis examines a number of discrete Laplace-type distributions developed using the RST and the RSMT of the Geometric and the Poisson distributions. Properties of these distributions are derived. Moreover, using two real life of data sets, the proposed distributions are compared with their available counterparts in the literature.
