Abstract:

This paper investigates alternatives to MVUMinimum Variance Unbiased estimators in noncentral chi-square and F distribution. Two directions are pursued. In the first, a general approach for uniformly improving on MVU estimators are characterized and illustrated as well. This effort extends earlier work of Perlman and Rasmussen and of Neff and Strawderman. Author
