Estimation of the means in the branching process with immigration. (English) Zbl 0736.62071
The paper is concerned with estimation problems for the means of the offspring and immigration distributions of a branching process with immigration. The aim of the authors is to suggest estimators and to study their properties in the case when no a priori information is available for the range of the mean of the offspring distribution.
