Abstract or Summary
  • The problem addressed is absence of a class of objects in a finite set of objects, which is investigated by considering absence of a species and absence in relation to a threshold. Regarding absence of a species, we demonstrate that the assessed probability of absence of the class of objects in the finite set of objects given absence of the class in the sample is either exactly or approximately equal to the probability of observing a specific single object from the class of objects given the protocol for observation, where probability is interpreted as a degree of belief. Regarding absence in relation to a threshold, we develop a new estimator of the upper confidence bound for the finite population distribution function evaluated at the threshold and investigate its properties for a set of finite populations. In addition we show that estimation regarding the initial ordered value in the finite population has limited usefulness.
