### Find the maximum likelihood estimator of $\theta$ with pdf $f(x)=2x/\theta^2$ [duplicate]

Let $(X_1,\dots, X_n)$ be a random sample from $X$ with pdf $f(x)=2x/\theta^2$ for $0\le x\le \theta$ where $\theta>0$. Find the maximum likelihood estimator of $\theta$. The likelihood function ...

### What is the influence of multicolinearity on the likelihood ratio test?

I learned the two concepts separately and I try to find out how these concepts relate to each other. To illustrate the question introduce three models. The models establish a relation between age (AGE)...
I have a sample of size $n$ from a bivariate distribution which have joint pdf with below form \$f_X(x)f_Y(y) \left[1+\lambda\left(2F_X(x)-1\right)\left(2F_Y(y)-1\...
In a discrete time and space Markov chain, I know the formula to estimate the transition probabilities $$p_{ij} = \frac{n_{ij}}{\sum_{j \in S} n_{ij}}$$ I'm not sure however how you can find this is ...
