On the Relative Behavior of Point Estimators Based on a Decomposition of Mean Absolute Error
(University of Texas at Arlington, 1978-03)
Let [see pdf for notation] be a family of probability density functions indexed by the parameter [see pdf for notation]. We assume at least one of the [see pdf for notation] is unknown. Based on a random sample of size n ...
Comparison of Point Estimators of Normal Percentiles
(University of Texas at Arlington, 1977-08)
There are available several point estimators of the percentiles of a normal distribution with both mean and variance unknown. Consequently, it would seam appropriate to make a comparison among the estimators through sums ...
Structural Inference on Reliability in a Lognormal Model
(University of Texas at Arlington, 1975-12)
The theory of structural inference, as developed by Fraser (1968), is based on a group-theoretic approach using invariant Haar measures to Fisher's fiducial theory. Structural inference theory constructs a unique distribution, ...
A Survey of Techniques for Determining Lower Confidence Bounds on Series System Reliability Based on Subsystem Test Data
(University of Texas at Arlington, 1975-09)
A problem of considerable interest and for which a great deal of research has been expended is that of determining lower confidence bounds on series system reliability based on subsystem failure data. With ...
