Estimation of Frechet disribution parameters by joint distribution of ' m ' extremes

N. P. Singh, K. P. Singh & U. Singh
By using three medians a quick method of estimation of the parameters of the Fréchet distribution was given by Gumbel (1965). Tiago de Oliveira (1972) estimated the parameters of the distribution using the maximum likelihood method. Recently Singh (1987) proposed the maximum likelihood estimates based on m extremes of several samples. However, the joint information of the lower extremes should be used because the information is necessary to be recorded to achieve the first extremes....
