Cramer-von Mises Variance Estimators for Simulations

We study estimators for the variance parameter u 2 of a stationary process. The estimators are based on weighted Cramer-van Mises statistics formed from the standardized time series of the process. Certain weightings yield estimators which are "first-order unbiased" for u2 and which have low variance. We also show how the Cramer-von Mises estimators are related to the standardized time series area estimator; we use this relationship to establish additional estimators for u2 .

Goldsman, David; Kang, Keebom; Kim, Seong-Hee; Seila, Andrew F.; Tokol, Gamze (2006);We propose three related estimators for the variance parameter arising from a steady-state simulation process. All are based on combinations of standardized-time-series area and Cramér–von Mises (CvM) estimators. The first ...
A simulation study of estimates of a first passage time distribution for a censored semi-Markov process. Gallagher, Rick M. (1986-09);This thesis reports on a simulation study of parametric and nonparametric estimators of a first passage time distribution for a censored semi-Markov process. Four estimators are proposed and compared; Maximum Likelihood ...
