Bayes Estimation of the Reliability Function of Pareto Distribution Under Three Different Loss Functions
In this paper, we have proposed Bayes estimators of shape parameter of Pareto distribution as well as reliability function under SELF, QLF and APLF loss functions. For better understanding of Bayesian approach, we consider Jeffrey’s prior as non-informative prior, exponential and gamma priors as informative priors. The proposed estimators have been compared with Maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) and the uniformly minimum variance unbiased estimator (UMVUE). Moreover, the current study also derives the expressions for risk function under these three loss functions. The results obtained have been illustrated with the real as well as simulated data set.
