Admissibility, Bayes and empirical Bayes estimators, record values, entropy loss function


In this paper, we consider one-parameter exponential family and obtain the minimum variance unbiased estimator , Bayes and empirical Bayes estimators of the unknown parameter based on record values under entropy loss function. The admissibility and inadmissibility of a class of inverse linear estimators are also discussed based on upper records.
