Uniform minimum variance unbiased estimators for bivariate families. (English) Zbl 0746.62022
Summary: We consider uniform minimum variance unbiased (UMVU) estimation of an unbiased estimable function of distribution parameters for bivariate truncation (non-regular) parameter families. In particular, we derive the UMVU estimator of the probability that \(Y\) is less than \(X\).
