Unbiased Estimators of Standard Deviation in a Truncated Arcsine Distribution

  • Published : 1997.08.01


Three kinds of unbiased estimators of standard deviation in a truncated arcsine distribution based on the quasi-range, the jackknife quasi-range, and the angle jackknife range are proposed and numerically compared each other in a sense of MSE.
