The Weibull distribution has many applications in reliability engineering, survival analysis, and general insurance. Let > 0, > 0. Consider the probability density function δ 1 β δ , δ δ ; β β x e x x f , x > 0, zero otherwise. Recall: W = X has an Exponential ( = 1 β ) = Gamma ( = 1, = 1 β ) distribution. Let X 1 , X 2 , … , X n be a random sample from the above probability distribution. Y = n i i 1 δ X = n i i 1 W has a Gamma ( = n , = 1 β ) distribution. ! ! ! Suppose is known. m) Find a sufficient statistic Y = u ( X 1 , X 2 , … , X n ) for . n) Find the Fisher information I ( ) . o) Recall that β ˆ ˆ = n i i n 1 δ X 1 is an unbiased estimator of .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
