Question: With reference to Example 10 4 find an unbiased estimator of

With reference to Example 10.4, find an unbiased estimator of β based on the smallest sample value (that is, on the first order statistic, Y1).
Example 10.4
If X1, X2, . . . , Xn constitute a random sample from a uniform population with α = 0, show that the largest sample value (that is, the nth order statistic, Yn) is a biased estimator of the parameter β. Also, modify this estimator of β to make it unbiased.
