Abstract : In the paper the jackknife method is used in conjunction with the Rao-Blackwell procedure to obtain a specific formula for the UMVU estimator of any analytical function of mu and chi square in the normal case. The formula given is easy to employ and quite suitable for machine calculation. (Author)
