Abstract : Given as ordered sample from a normal distribution, the location and scale parameters can be estimated by use of the coefficients tabled in the thesis. These coefficients used with ordered sample will give the nearly best unbiased linear estimators of the location and scale parameters for sample sizes ranging from fifteen to forty. Both single and double censoring are included. (Author)
