I recently came across the distribution $U(\theta, k \theta)$ (where k is known) in the context of statistical theory (as a nice toy example for finding MLE and the likes).
However, I was wondering if there are real use cases where one might wish to use this distribution for modelling something. But I couldn't seem to find any paper using this (or similar) distribution for actual data.
My question is if you happen to know of such a use for this distribution (or one similar to it). And more generally, how can one search for it effectively?
