Abstract

In the classical framework of statistical inference, the unknown parameter of interest is considered to be a constant, and a classical confidence interval for the parameter is a random interval (L, U) that contains the unknown parameter with a specified high probability. Such a confidence interval is usually derived from the probability distribution of a pivotal quantity. The problem of computing a classical confidence interval b
