Properties of estimators

Especially in the following chapters, designations such as bias or asymptotic unbiasedness will be used repeatedly. These expressions are used to describe properties of an estimator. These terms are explained briefly here.

Assumption: The distribution of the sample elements Properties of estimators has an unknown parameter Properties of estimators. A function t that approximately estimates from the sample values the parameter Properties of estimators is given by:

Generally a function of a sample, ...
