Sažetak
We consider a parameter estimation problem for a diffusion with killing, starting at a point in an open and bounded set. The infinitesimal killing rate function depends on a control variable and parameters. Values of the control variable are known while parameters have unknown values which have to be estimated from data. The minimum of three times: the maximum observation time, the first exit time from the open set, and the killing time, is observed. Instead of the maximum likelihood estimation method we propose and use the minimum $\chi^2$-estimation method that is based on the conditional mean of the data observed before the maximum observation time is reached, and on the frequency of data that are equal to the maximum observation time. We prove that the estimator exists and is consistent and asymptotically normal. The method is illustrated by an example.
