Abstract
  • This thesis presents the results of sampling experiments investigating the properties of estimates of the mean life of a radioactive source in the presence of a constant unknown background. An iterative estimation procedure is used where the estimates are maximum liklihood estimates with asymptotic variances. The estimation procedure was programmed in FORTRAN for the I.B.M. 1620 computer and a large number of examples were run to study the bias, divergence and variance of the estimates. Particular emphasis is placed upon the reduction in the number of divergent cases by improvements in the estimation procedure.
