The Two-Interval Line-Segment Problem


Complete text may be found in Scandinavian Journal of Statistics, 25, 163-186, 1998.


In this paper, the NPMLE in the one-dimensional line segment problem is defined and studied, where line segments on the real line through two non-overlapping intervals are observed. The self-consistency equations for the NPMLE are defined and a quick algorithm for solving them is provided. Supnorm weak convergence to a Gaussian process and efficiency of the NPMLE is proved. The problem has a strong geological application in the study of the lifespan of species.
