Consistency of nonparametric maximum likelihood estimation of a distribution function based on doubly interval-censored failure time data
We study the nonparametric maximum likelihood estimation of a failure time distribution function based on doubly interval-censored data. A self-consistent equation is derived for the estimator. Furthermore, the strong consistency of the estimator is established.
