Approximate Nonparametric Maximum Likelihood Estimation for Interval Censoring Model Case II (Running Head: NPMLE for Interval Censoring Case II)

Ao Yuan, Yizheng Wei, Kepher Makambi, Hongkun Wang


We study the nonparametric maximum likelihood estimate of the distribution function in a type II interval censoring model. We propose an approximate solution of the problem under a technical assumption. Some basic asymptotic properties of the estimator are investigated.
