    Rayleigh estimator and correction factor

    We're using the Rayleigh distribution for some real-world scenarios. We often need to estimate its parameter (sigma) from samples R of size N where N is very small. The estimator we're using for sigma, \widehat{\sigma} = \sqrt{\frac{\sum r_i^2}{2n}}, is biased. Using Monte Carlo analysis...
