Parameter estimation of gamma distribution
Zahrádková, Petra ; Kulich, Michal (advisor) ; Hlávka, Zdeněk (referee)
It is well-known that maximum likelihood (ML) estimators of the two parame- ters in a Gamma distribution do not have closed forms. The Gamma distribution is a special case of a generalized Gamma distribution. Two of the three likeli- hood equations of the generalized Gamma distribution can be used as estimating equations for the Gamma distribution, based on which simple closed-form estima- tors for the two Gamma parameters are available. Intuitively, performance of the new estimators based on likelihood equations should be close to the ML estima- tors. The study consolidates this conjecture by establishing the asymptotic beha- viours of the new estimators. In addition, the closed-forms enable bias-corrections to these estimators. 1
GOF tests for gamma distribution
Klička, Petr ; Hlávka, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Kulich, Michal (referee)
The Bachelor thesis deals with the goodness of fit test for the Gamma distribution. Initially, we show several ways how to estimate the parameters of the Gamma distribution - firstly, the maximum likelihood estimator is presented, followed by estimator gained by the method of moments and fi- nally, we introduce the new estimator based on the sample covariance. The last estimator is used for constructing the goodness of fit test for the Gamma distribution. We define the test statistics V ∗ n to this test and its asymptotic normality is derived under the assumption of the null hypothesis. At the end of the thesis the simulations are realized to obtain the empirical size of the test for various values of parameter a and parameter b which equals one. 1
