  • Consistent estimation of distributions with type II bias with applications in competing 

    El Barmi, Hammou; Mukerjee, Hari (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2004-02)
    A random variable X is symmetric about 0 if X and -X have the same distribution. There is a large literature on the estimation of a distribution function (DF) under the symmetry restriction and tests for checking this ...
  • Improved asymptotics of a decreasing mean residual life estimator 

    Lorenzo, Edgardo; Mukerjee, Hari (Taylor & Francis Group, 2014-09-17)
    The mean residual life of a life distribution, X, with a finite mean is defined by M(t) = E[X - t|X > t] for t > 0. Kochar etal. (2000) provided an estimator of M when it is assumed to be decreasing. They showed that its ...
