Estimating the Distribution Function of a Symmetric Distribution

Abstract

This paper considers the problem of estimating the distribution function of a symmetric distribution when the centre of symmetry is unknown. An estimator is proposed which is shown to be asymptotically better than the empirical distribution function for well-known distributions including the normal, double exponential and Cauchy.
