Abstract

In this paper we obtain estimators for the variance of the offspring distribution of a controlled branching process and we derive, for these estimators, some moments and asymptotic properties as consistency and limiting distribution.

Key Words

Branching processes method of moment estimators maximum likelihood estimators asymptotic behaviour
