Tolerance Limits and Confidence Limits on Reliability for the Two-Parameter Exponential Distribution
• Mathematics
• 1 February 1978
Tolerance limits and confidence limits on reliability, which closely approximate exact limits. are proposed for the two-parameter exponential distribution. These approximations have the advantageExpand

Interval Estimation for the Two-parameter Double Exponential Distribution
• Mathematics
• 1 November 1973
Confidence intervals based on the maximum likelihood estimators are given for the location and scale parameters of the Double Exponential distribution. These intervals are obtained by determining theExpand

Simple Approximate Distributional Results for Confidence and Tolerance limits for the Weibull Distribution Based on Maximum likelihood Estimators
• Mathematics
• 1 February 1981
One form of the generalized gamma distribution brings out an association between the normal distribution and the extreme-value distribution. This relationship suggests chi-squared, Student's t andExpand

On Prediction Limits for Samples From a Weibull or Extreme-Value Distribution
• Mathematics
• 1 May 1982
A new, simplified approximation for lower prediction limits is derived for the smallest of a set of future observations from a Weibull or extreme-value distribution. The proposed limit can beExpand

Some Complete and Censored Sampling Results for the Weibull or Extreme-Value Distribution
• Mathematics
• 1 August 1973
A simple, unbiased estimator, based on a censored sample, has been proposed by Rain [1] for the scale parameter of the Extreme-value distribution. This estimator was shown to have high efficiency andExpand
