A conditional approach to robustness is described and applied to interval estimation for a location parameter. Two new types of confidence interval estimators using two-dimensional numerical integrations within location-and-scale configurations emerge. Strong confidence intervals have robust conditional coverage probabilities. Bioptimal confidence intervals are as short as possible and have robust overall coverage probabilities. Robust intervals compromising the Gaussian and the slash distributions serve as e…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
