This estimator dominates the mean estimator for dimensions greater or equal than three. In this work, we present variations of this estimator for the independent normal case with unequal variances and for the general case where the estimator is obtained using the Mahalanobis’ metric. Geometric justications and a study of the behavior of these estimators by computational simulation for dimension three are presented using the mean square error as a measure of quality.</p>}, number={4}, journal={Brazilian Journal of Biometrics}, author={GAJO, Cristiane Alvarenga and CHAVES, Lucas Monteiro and SOUZA, Devanil Jaques de}, year={2017}, month={Dec.}, pages={753–764} }
