We provide a development that unifies, simplifies and extends considerably a number of minimax results in the restricted parameter space literature. Various applications follow, such as that of estimating location or scale parameters under a lower (or upper) bound restriction, location parameter vectors restricted to a polyhedral cone, scale parameters subject to restricted ratios or products, linear combinations of restricted location parameters, location parameters bounded to an interval with unknown scale, quantiles for location-scale families with parametric restrictions and restricted covariance matrices.
