Choice of best estimate for the measured value from strongly discretized observations

  • D. A. Masterenko

The problem of choosing the best statistical estimate of observations when the random spread in the values is comparable to the scale and the measured quantity is a continuous scalar parameter is examined. A formula similar to the Pitman estimate is obtained. The properties of this estimate and its relation to the Bayesian estimate are analyzed.
