- In this paper, we study the Bayesian estimation of functions of parameters of some power series distributions. These estimators are better than the classical minimum variance unbiased estimators (MVUE) as given by Patil and Joshi (1970), in the sense that these increase the range of the estimation and also have simpler forms.
