Moment estimators for the two-parameter M-Wright distribution
A formal parameter estimation procedure for the two-parameter M-Wright distribution is proposed. This procedure is necessary to make the model useful for real-world applications. Note that its generalization of the Gaussian density makes the M-Wright distribution appealing to practitioners. Closed-form estimators are also derived from the moments of the log-transformed M-Wright distributed random variable, and are shown to be asymptotically normal. Tests using simulated data indicated favorable results for our estimation procedure. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2012
