MODIFIED MAXIMUM LIKELIHOOD ESTIMATION IN
LINEAR FAILURE RATE DISTRIBUTION
by R.R.L.Kantam M.Ch.Priya and M.S.Ravikumar.
Some estimation procedures for the linear failure rate distribution (LFRD) are
considered. The well known classical method . maximum likelihood (ML) estimation is
attempted resulting in iterative solutions as the MLEs of the parameters. Accordingly, attempts
may also be necessary to develop other methods of estimation for LFRD parameters that are
reasonably efficient and computationally simple/analytical. We study modified ML estimation to
estimate LFRD parameters and compare with exact MLEs in small as well as large samples
