Abstract : The report is concerned primarily with two general topics, the development of statistical procedures for the two-parameter and three-parameter Weibull distributions based on maximum likelihood estimators, and a study of the properties of the Weibull distribution as a life-testing model when the more general three-parameter generalized gamma distribution is assumed applicable. New statistical methods for the generalized gamma distribution are developed to make this study possible. The procedures developed for the Weibull distribution are also applied to the double exponential distribution. (Author)
