Sequential risk-efficient estimation of the parameter in the uniform density
We develop a risk-efficient sequential procedure for estimating the parameter of the uniform density on . We give explicit expressions for the distribution of the stopping time and derive its expectation and variance. We also tabulate the values of the expected stopping time and its standard deviation for some selected values of the parameter. Asymptotic properties such as efficiency and risk-efficiency are established.
