The Sampling Distribution of the Maximum Likelihood Estimators for the Parameters of Weibull Distribution Based on Upper Record Values

by Ashour, S.K. and Amin, E.A.

Abstract: Record values and associated statistics are of great important in several real-live problems involving weather, economic, and sport data. Based on upper record values and for the two parameter s Weibull distribution, Ashour and Amin (2005) obtained the maximum likelihood estimators for the unknown parameters. In this paper the sampling distributions and their properties for these estimators will be investigated numerically.

Key Words: Weibull distribution,Upper record values,Maximum likelihood estimation, Sampling distribution
