# Maximum Likelihood Estimation on Exponential Family

Does any one know of a good source for the study of maximum likelihood estimation on a general exponential family of the form $f(x;\theta)=a(\theta)g(x)\exp[{\sum_{i=1}^{k} b_i(\theta)R_i(x)}]$? Any help is greatly appreciated.

• Off the top of my head, Jun Shao's Mathematical Statistics and Lehmann and Casella's Theory of Point Estimation both discuss this, but I don't know if there is a canonical one – jld Jan 3 '18 at 16:30
• @Chaconne. I also came to know about Jun Shao and Lehmann's other books as well. Very helpful. Thank you very much. – Ashok Jan 4 '18 at 11:47
