Estimation of a linear function of the parameters of an exponential distribution from doubly censored samples



In this paper improved estimators of the scale and its reciprocal, [theta](0-1), and the location, [mu], of a two-parameter exponential distribution are given based on a doubly censored sample. Also the problem of estimating the linear function [mu] + z[theta] is considered, where z is a given constant. It is shown that the improved estimators are better than the best affine equivariant estimators.
