ISSN New Etropy Estimators with Smaller Root Mea Squared Error Amer Ibrahim AlOmari Al albayt Uiversity Mafraq, Jorda New estimators of etropy of cotiuous radom variable are suggested. The proposed estimators are ivestigated uder simple radom samplig (SRS), raked set samplig (RSS), ad double raked set samplig (DRSS) methods. The estimators are compared with Vasicek (976) ad AlOmari (204) etropy estimators theoretically ad by simulatio i terms of the root mea squared error (RMSE) ad bias values. The results idicate that the suggested estimators have less RMSE ad bias values tha their competig estimators itroduced by Vasicek (976) ad AlOmari (204). Keywords: Shao etropy; simple radom samplig, raked set samplig; double raked set samplig; root mea square error. Itroductio The raked set samplig was first suggested by McItyre (952) to estimate a mea of pasture ad forage yields. It is a cost efficiet samplig procedure alterative to the commoly used simple radom samplig scheme. The RSS is useful i situatios where the visual orderig of a set of uits ca be doe easily, but the exact measuremet of the uits is difficult or expesive. Let the variable of iterest X has a probability desity fuctio (pdf) g(x) ad a cumulative distributio fuctio (cdf) G(x), with mea μ ad variace σ 2. Let g (i:) (x) ad G (i:) (x) be the pdf ad cdf of the ith order statistic, X (i:), ( i ) of a radom sample of size. The pdf ad the cdf of X (i:), respectively, are give by i i g( i : ) x G x Gx g x, x i Amer Ibrahim AlOmari is Faculty of Sciece, i the Departmet of Mathematics. at: 88

Radomly select 2 uits from the target populatio. Step 2. Allocate the 2 selected uits radomly ito sets, each of size. Step 3. Without yet kowig ay values for the variable of iterest, rak the uits withi each set with respect to a variable of iterest. This may be based o a persoal professioal judgmet or based o a cocomitat variable correlated with the variable of iterest. Step 4. The sample uits are selected for actual measuremet by icludig the ith smallest raked uit of the ith sample (i =, 2,, ). Step 5. Repeat Steps through 4 for r cycles to obtai a sample of size r for actual measuremet. It is of iterest to ote here that eve if 2 uits are selected from the populatio, but oly of them are measured for compariso with a simple radom samplig of the same size. Let the measured RSS uits are deoted by X (:), X 2(2:),, X (:). The i RSS estimator of the populatio mea is defied as XRSS Xii :. Takahasi ad Wakimoto (968) provided the mathematical theory of the RSS ad showed that 2 i: i: RSS 2 ii: g x g x,, Var X. i i i AlSaleh ad AlKadiri (2000) suggested double raked set samplig (DRSS) method for estimatig the populatio mea to icrease the efficiecy of the estimators for fixed sample size. The DRSS method ca be described as: 2 89
5 NEW ENTROPY ESTIMATORS Step. Radomly choose 2 samples of size each from the target populatio. Step 2. Apply the RSS method described above o the 2 samples i Step. This step yields samples of size each. Step 3. Reapply the RSS method agai o the samples obtaied i Step 2 to obtai a sample of size from the DRSS data. The cycle ca be repeated r times if eeded to obtai a sample of size r uits. Let X be a cotiuous radom variable with probability desity fuctio gx ( ) ad cumulative distributio fuctio G(x). The etropy H [g(x)] of the radom variable is defied by Shao (948a, 948b) as H g x g x log g x dx. () The problem of etropy estimatio of a cotiuous radom variable is cosidered by may authors. Vasicek's (976) suggested a estimator of etropy based o spacig's as log dg p H g x dp, 0 dp (2) where the estimatio is foud by replacig the distributio fuctio G(x) by the empirical distributio fuctio G (x), ad usig the differece operator istead of d the differetial operator. The the derivative G p is estimated by a dp fuctio of the order statistics. Let X, X 2,, X be a simple radom sample of size from G(x) ad X () < X (2) < < X () be the order statistics of the sample. The Vasicek's (976) estimator of H [g(x)] is defied as HV log X X 2 (3) m i m i m i m 90

Va Es (992) suggested a estimator of etropy based o spacigs as m HVEm X X i m i log m log m i m km k (4) ad proved the cosistecy ad the asymptotic ormality of the estimator uder some coditios. Ebrahimi, Pflughoeft, ad Soofi (994) adjusted the weights of Vasicek (976) estimator to have a smaller weights ad proposed a etropy estimator give by where HE X X log (5) m i m i m i im i, i m, m i 2, m i m, i, m i, m where X (im) = X () for i m ad X (i+m) = X () for i m. Ebrahimi et al. (994) showed by simulatio that their estimator has a smaller bias ad mea squared error tha Vasicek (976) estimator. Also, they proved that P. HEm H g x m m as,, 0. Noughabi ad Noughabi (203) suggested a ew estimator of etropy of a ukow cotiuous probability desity fuctio as 9

They proved that HNN P m H g x as, m, m / 0. Note that the kerel fuctio i Noughabi ad Noughabi (203) is selected to be the stadard ormal distributio ad the badwidth h is chose to be h =.06s /5, where s is the sample stadard deviatio. To estimate the etropy H [g(x)] of a ukow cotiuous probability desity fuctio g(x), Noughabi ad Arghami (200) suggested a etropy estimator give by where HN X X log (7) m i m i m i cim, im, ci 2, m i m,, m i, ad X (im) = X () if i m ad X (i+m) = X () for i m. Correa (995) suggested a modified etropy estimator to have smaller mea squared error i the form 92

Based o SRS his first suggested estimator is defied as AHESRS X X log (9) m i m i m i im where X (im) = X () for i m, X (i+m) = X () for i m, ad, i m, 2 i 2, m i m,, m i, 2 (0) The secod ad third estimators suggested by AlOmari (204), based o RSS ad DRSS respectively, are give by ad AHERSS X X * * log () m i m i m i im AHEDRSS X X ** ** log (2) m i m i m i im * * * * where Xi m X () for i m ad X X im ( ) for i m, ad 93

Proof: The proof of (a), (b), (c), is straightforward by usig (5), (8), (2), respectively, where 2 m log I the followig theorem, we compare our suggested etropy estimators with their competitors i AlOmari (204). Theorem 2: Based o the suggested estimators ad AlOmari (204) etropy respectively, we have SHEj m > AHEj m, j = SRS, RSS, DRSS. Proof: Compare (9) with (3) based o SRS to obtai SHESRS m 2m 6 AHESRS m log, 5 ad sice 2 m log 6 0, the the case of SRS holds. Also, compare () with (7) 5 based o RSS, ad (2) with (9) usig DRSS to complete the proof of this theorem. The followig theorem proves the cosistecy of the suggested estimators SHESRS m, SHERSS m, ad SHEDRSS m. Theorem 3: Let Ω be the class of cotiuous desities with fiite etropies ad let X, X 2,, X be a radom sample from g Ω. If, m, m/ 0, the SHEj m, (j = SRS, RSS, DRSS) coverges i probability to H [g(x)]. Proof: Based o the simple radom samplig, from (5) we have 97
13 NEW ENTROPY ESTIMATORS SHESRS m 2m 8 HVSRS m log, 5 ad Vasicek (976) showed that HVSRS m coverges i probability to H [g(x)] ad sice 2 m log 8 coverges to zero as goes to ifiity, the we proved the 5 case of the SRS. Follow the same approach ad use (8) ad (2) to prove the theorem for RSS ad DRSS estimators, respectively. Methodology Simulatio study A simulatio was coducted to ivestigate the performace of the suggested etropy estimators with Vasicek (976) ad AlOmari (204) etropy estimators usig samplig methods cosidered i this study. The compariso is based o the root mea squared errors (RMSEs) ad bias values of the estimators for 0000 samples geerated from the uiform, expoetial ad the stadard ormal distributios usig SRS, RSS ad DRSS methods. The selectio of the optimal values of the widow size of m for a give value is as yet a ope problem i the etropy estimatio. Therefore, we used the heuristic formula m 0.5 suggested by Wieczorkowski ad Grzegorzewski (999) to select m ad to compute the RMSEs of etropy estimators. I this study, we cosidered the sample ad widow sizes as give i Table. Table. The sample ad widow sizes cosidered i this simulatio Sample size = 0 = 20 = 30 Widow size m 5 m 0 m 5 Also, the performace of the RMSE of the suggested estimators for samples geerated from the uiform, expoetial ad stadard ormal distributios is evaluated based o the quatity Q N HVjm N 00, N SHEj m, AHEj m, j SRS, RSS, DRSS. HVj m 98
14 AMER IBRAHIM ALOMARI The results are summarized i Tables 26. Also, we compared the suggested estimators of etropy with their competitors suggested by AlOmari (204) ad the results preseted i Table 7 are take from AlOmari (204). Based o these results observe the followig. The suggested etropy estimators usig SRS, RSS ad DRSS methods are more efficiet tha their competitors HV m based o the same method for all cases cosidered i this study. As a example, from Table 3, with = 0 ad m = 3 for the expoetial distributio with H [g(x)] = usig RSS method, the RMSE ad bias value of SHERSS m are ad compared to ad the RMSE ad bias of HVRSS m. The SHEDRSS m is superior to the other suggested estimators, SHERSS m ad SHESRS m uder the uiform, expoetial ad ormal distributios. From Table, cosider the case of = 20 ad m = 4 uder the uiform distributio whe H [g(x)] = 0, it ca be oted that the RMSE values of SHEDRSS m, SHERSS m, ad SHESRS m are , ad , respectively. The ature of the uderlyig distributio as well as the value of H [g(x)] affect o the efficiecy of the estimator usig the same method. As a example, the Q values with = 30 ad m = 3 SHERSS m for the uiform, expoetial, ad the stadard ormal distributios are , ad , respectively. However, the values of Q for the uiform distributio with H [g(x)] = 0 are SHE m superior to their couterparts for the expoetial ad ormal distributios. Fially, the suggested etropy estimators are foud to be more efficiet tha their competitors i AlOmari (204) etropy estimators usig SRS, RSS ad DRSS schemes for the same widow ad sample sizes. For illustratio, assume that = 30 ad m = 8 whe the uderlyig distributio is the stadard ormal, from Table 4, the RMSE of SHERSS m is compared to which is the RMSE of AHERSS m as show i Table 7. 99

22 AMER IBRAHIM ALOMARI Coclusio Three etropy estimators are suggested usig SRS, RSS, ad DRSS methods. The cosistecy of these estimators is proved as well as some properties are reported. Based o theoretical ad umerical comparisos the suggested etropy estimators are more efficiet tha Vasicek (976) ad AlOmari (204) etropy estimators. However, the suggested estimators of etropy i this paper ca be exteded by cosiderig other samplig methods such as the multistage RSS ad media RSS methods.
