Generalized exponential distribution: Different method of estimations. (English) Zbl 1007.62011
Summary: Recently a new distribution, named as generalized exponential distribution, has been introduced and studied quite extensively by the authors [Aust. N. Z. J. Stat. 41, No. 2, 173-188 (1999)]. The generalized exponential distribution can be used as an alternative to gamma or Weibull distributions in many situations. In a companion paper [Generalized exponential distributions: statistical inferences. Tech. Rep., Univ. New Brunswick (1999)], the authors considered the maximum likelihood estimation of the different parameters of a generalized exponential distribution and discussed some of the testing of hypothesis problems. In this paper we mainly consider five other estimation procedures and compare their performances through numerical simulations.
