Accelerated Sequential Procedure to Estimate the Mean of Unknown Distribution

  • Published : 1997.08.01


Consider the accelerated sequential procedure of Hall(1983). Second order asymptotic expression of well behaved functions of the stopping variable. The results is demonstrated by working out several point and interval estimation problems.
