Abstract:

Several sequences of nonparametric empirical Bayes estimators of a distribution or reliability function are considered. Their asymptotic optimality relative to a Dirichlet process prior is investigated, and the estimators are compared for a small number of stages with respect to Weibull distributions by computer simulation.
