On the Weibull distribution
This work involves the comparisons of various estimates of the parameters of the Weibull distribution. These estimates have been obtained by using various statistical techniques, such as the method of maximum likelihood estimation, the method of moments, etc. The importance, history, practical applications, and characteristics of the Weibull distribution have also been discussed.Computer programs have been developed and included to compare the various estimates. These computer programs were run on an IBM System 360.
