Abstract : When a target is rectangular and data are collected on the location of hits within the target area only, a truncated bivariate normal model will most often fit the data very well. An analysis is carried out of the estimation of the parameters of this distribution and computational procedures are devised for computing these estimates. In the process of these analyses approximations are obtained to functions which could be termed generalizations of Mill's ratio. These ratios have applications in reactor technology. (Author)
