Abstract:

Properties of two alternative procedures to the Jackknife Point and Confidence Interval Estimation Procedure of Gaver and Chu have been studied. They are called the Log-Normal Likelihood Procedure LNLJ and the Moment Procedure MP. These two procedures were investigated and compared with the Jackknife Point and Confidence Interval Availability Estimation Procedure. Numerical results from simulations are presented in this report. Author
