Abstract


Percentile estimators have a widespread use in the estimation of distribution parameters in terms of simplicity and ease of computation. In this study, we investigated the percentile method for two component mixture Rayleigh distribution which is commonly used in modelling of heterogeneous univariate data sets. Performances of the defined percentile estimators are compared to maximum likelihood estimators by simulation study.
