Computes uniformly minimum variance unbiased (UMVU) estimates of the mean, the standard error of the mean, and the standard deviation of lognormally distributed data.

`x` |
Vector of lognormal data |

`tol` |
Tolerence level for convengence of the infinite series, |

`verbose` |

Calculates equations 13.3, 13.5, and 13.6 of Gilbert (1987).

Returns a named vector with the following components

`mu` |
The UMVUE of the mean |

`se.mu` |
The UMVUE standard error of the mean |

`sigma` |
The UMVUE of the standard deviation |
