Maximum Likelihood Estimators and Confidence Intervals for Specific Life Distributions
- 538 Downloads
In the present chapter we provide a survey of methods for determining the MLE of the characteristics of the life distributions presented in Sections 2.3 and 2.5. All these estimators relate to complete sample data on time till failure. The required adjustments for censored data were discussed in Section 6.4. We also include (whenever available) formulae for the exact confidence limits for the parameters. Formulae for the asymptotic confidence limits are given for all cases.
