Title : Estimation of uniform distribution parameters

Author: Tobias Hoßfeld

Short Description:

The unknown parameters a and b of a uniform distribution X~U(a,b) are estimated from a sample. The well-known methods of moments leads to implausible results for this distribution. Instead the maximum likelihood estimator leads to efficient results.
