TITLE:Interval Estimation For The Parameters Under The Uniform Distribution U(a,b)


Revisit interval estimation for the parameters under the uniform distribution $U(a,b)$. We study two approaches: (1) based on a Wald-type statistic, (2) based on a pivotal statistic. We show that the first approach in its common form is not valid and we propose a modified version of the first approach. It turns out it is equivalent to the CI with the shortest length.
