### Help in formulation of maximum likelihood estimation

Assuming that distances between points in a vector is $||X_i-X_j|| \le l_0$ where $l_0$ is the maximum scaling distance. The points are the samples on a reconstructed attractor of a non linear system ...

### How to get exact distribution of estimated p for binomial distribution?

This question is kind of a follow up of another question I had: Asymptotic normal distribution via the central limit theorem There I had to calculate the estimator for $p$ (meaning $p$ for success) ...

### Maximum likelihood estimate: Is this possible to solve?

I have the following problem: Formulate the likelihood function, the log-likelihood function, and the maximum-likelihood estimate as well as the Fisher information and the observed Fisher information ...

### Relation between best fit line and eigenvector of maximum eigen value of an estimated covariance matrix

(This question is from my pattern recognition course.) There is this exercise: Imagine we have $N$ samples with $n$ dimensions. First it asks to find a point $m$ where the summation of Euclidean ...

### Maximum likelihood estimation and the n-th order statistic

Let $X_1, ..., X_n$ be a sample of independent, identically distributed random variables, with density $$f_{\theta}(x)=e^{ (\theta -x)}$$. $x \ge \theta$, otherwise $f_\theta = 0$ The question ...
