Censored data maximum likelihood using matlab

I am trying to minimise a likelihood function and estimate the parameter value of $λ$ by fitting to the following data. $t$ is the time and $N(t)$ is the population measured at those specific time ...

How to find the MLE of these parameters given distribution?

Let $X$ and $Y$ be independent exponential random variables, with $$f(x\mid\lambda)=\frac{1}{\lambda}\exp{\left(-\frac{x}{\lambda}\right)},\,x>0\,, \qquad f(y\mid\mu)=\frac{1}{\mu}\exp{\left(-\...

Fitting distributions on censored data

My question deals with fitting distributions on censored data; for the purposes of clarity, we can consider a continuous distribution which is both left and right-censored. In such a case, the ...

Asymptotics for Parametric MLE for Right-Censored Data

Many books and articles in survival analysis state that under the appropriate regularity conditions, that for a parametric failure time distribution and the assumption of random right-censoring, that ...

Find the Method of Moments estimator of $\theta$ and derive its asymptotic distribution

Let $Y_1, \ldots , Y_n$ be a random sample from the uniform distribution on the interval $(0, \theta)$ with an unknown $\theta > 1$. Suppose we only observe for $i = 1, \ldots , n$ $$X_i= \begin{...
