The present study is concerned with the estimation of Inverse Exponential distribution using various Bayesian approximation techniques like normal approximation, Tierney and Kadane (T-K) Approximation. Different informative and non-informative priors are used to obtain the Baye’s estimate of Inverse Exponential distribution under different approximation techniques. A simulation study has also been conducted for comparison of Baye’s estimates obtained under different approximation using different priors.
