# Max Likelihood Methods (Estimators)

Let Y1<Y2<......<Yn be the order statistics of a random sample of size n from the uniform distribution of the continuous type over the closed interval [theta- rho, theta+ rho]. Find the maximum likelihood estimators for theta and rho. Are these two unbiased estimators?

6.4.5 Let Y1<Y2<......<Yn be the order statistics of a random sample of size n from the

uniform distribution of the continuous type over the closed interval [theta- rho, theta+ rho]. Find the maximum likelihood estimators for theta and rho. Are these two unbiased estimators?

Answers:

MLE for theta (Y1+Yn)/2

For rho (Yn-Y1)/2

No

Solution. Since Y1<Y2<......<Yn are the order statistics ...
