Estimation of the standard deviation when the mean is known
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology
The problem of estimating the standard deviation of a normal distribution with known mean μ is considered. The estimator minimizing the mean squared error among all constant multiples of the second sample moment about either μ or (formula presented) is found. © 1994 Taylor & Francis Ltd.
