c=1,[edit]

"Note when c=1, the Burr distribution becomes the Pareto distribution. "

This certainly seems wrong when the Pareto entry is examined. I will take it out if nobody comments. A connection section could easily be added for Beta Prime, Dagum distributions. Actually a distribution tree should probably be started somewhere. I have an example from a paper.

With c=1, Burr has the same CDF as a Pareto Type II distribution with tail index k, \mu=0, \sigma=1. Mathstat (talk) 14:28, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
