Interval estimation using the likelihood function*

Abstract

The general properties of two commonly-used methods of interval estimation for population parameters in physics are examined. Both of these methods employ the likelihood function: (i) Obtaining an interval by finding the points where the likelihood decreases from its maximum by some specified ratio; (ii) Obtaining an interval by finding points corresponding… (More)
