Reliability characteristics of the Maxwell distribution: a Bayes estimation study. (English) Zbl 1081.62087
Summary: This article presents maximum likelihood, Bayes, and empirical Bayes estimators of the truncated first moment and hazard function of the Maxwell distribution. A comparison of the relative efficiency of these three estimators is performed via a Monte Carlo simulation study.
