@article{Kohansal2015ParameterEO, title={Parameter Estimation of Type-II Hybrid Censored Weighted Exponential Distribution}, author={Akram Kohansal and Saeid Rezakhah and Esmaile Khorram}, journal={Communications in Statistics - Simulation and Computation}, year={2015}, volume={44}, pages={1273 - 1299} }

A hybrid censoring scheme is a mixture of Type-I and Type-II censoring schemes. We study the estimation of parameters of weighted exponential distribution based on Type-II hybrid censored data. By applying the EM algorithm, maximum likelihood estimators are evaluated. Using Fisher information matrix, asymptotic confidence intervals are provided. By applying Markov chain Monte Carlo techniques, Bayes estimators, and corresponding highest posterior density confidence intervals of parameters are…
