Abstract : Beta-modal intervals are important as an indication of concentration of mass. Applications can be found in reliability theory and in certain areas of operations research such as traffic flow, where one seeks estimates on regions of high mortality of components or the location of regions of peak flow, respectively. Estimates for the mode of density obtained by Chernoff, Parzen, and Venter are not applicable in many cases since the mode itself might be the result of a momentary aberration in the physical behavior of a system.
