Fisher’s Fiducial Inference for Parameters of Uniform Distribution

Fisher’s Fiducial Inference for the parameters of a totality uniformly distributed on [α, β] is discussed. The corresponding fiducial distributions are derived. The maximum fiducial estimators, fiducial median estimators and fiducial expect estimators of α and β are got. The problems about the fiducial interval, fiducial region and hypothesis testing are discussed. An example which showed that Neyman-Pearson’s confidence interval has some place to be improved is illustrated. An idea about deriving fiducial distribution is proposed.
