Modelling by using a smooth family of empirical distributions and an application to failure time data

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper considers the construction of a smooth nonparametric family of empirical distributions indexed by a specified parameter of interest and shows
its usefulness in statistical inference. An application to failure time data illustrates how the family of distributions may be employed to calculate a likelihood for the parameter of interest.
