Abstract

Methods are presented for construction of interval estimates on the mean of a gamma distribution when there is some prior interval information as to the location of this parameter. The methods produce posterior intervals by constructing prior distributions for the mean parameter from the prior interval information. Both Bayesian and pseudo-Bayesian approaches for the construction of the priors are considered. These concepts are illustrated by an experiment assessing the operating characteristics of a laboratory chemical analyzer.
