Estimating and Assessing the Parameters of the Logistic and Rayleigh Distributions from Three Methods of Estimation

Abstract

This paper presents results on the parameter estimation of the Logistic and Rayleigh distributions. Three estimating methods are investigated, namely, the maximum likelihood, the moment and the probability weighted moment methods. Formulae for the estimates are derived. Simulations results show that, overall, the maximum likelihood outperforms the other… (More)
