# On Bayesian Estimation of Maxwell Distribution under Precautionary Loss Function

Authors

S. P. Singh

Abstract

In this paper Bayes estimator of the scale parameter of Maxwell distribution has been obtained by taking quasi, inverted gamma and uniform prior
distributions using precautionary loss function. These estimators are compared with the corresponding Bayes estimators under squared error loss function.

Keywords and Phrases : Squared error loss function, prior distribution, precautionary loss function, posterior pdf and expectation, inverted gamma distribution.
