## Comparison Of Estimators

Let  $$\displaystyle X_{1} , \dots , X_{n}$$  be a random sample from a population with probability density function  $$\displaystyle f(x ;\mu) = {e}^{ - (x-\mu)} \, , \, x \geq \mu$$.  Which of the statistics

$\displaystyle T_{1}(X_{1} , \dots , X_{n}) = \min_{1\leq i\leq n } X_{i} - \frac{1}{n}$

$\displaystyle T_{2}(X_{1} , \dots , X_{n}) = \frac{\sum_{i=1}^{n} X_{i} }{n} - 1$

is a better estimator than the other, if our loss function is the squared-error loss function?
