The Peigné-Canet-Schneider mle 1897 gun carriage was a railway gun carriage designed and built during the late 1800s. Two types of guns were mounted on these carriages and both the French Army and US Army used them during World War I. They were retired soon after World War I.
Why is the Maximum Likelihood function a product?
Explanations of how the Maximum Likelihood function is constructed usually just mention that events are independent and so the probability of several such events is just the product of the separate probabilities. I get the logic w.r.t...

Suppose you have a distribution ##p(x, \mu)##.
You take a sample of n points ## (x_{1}...x_{n})## from independent and identical distributions of ##p(x, \mu)##.
The maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) for the mean ## \mu ## is the value of ## \mu ## that maximizes the joint distribution ##...
I have one dimensional binned data that has a peak to which I need to fit a distribution, such as Gaussian or Lorentzian, that is described with four parameters, height, width, centroid position and the background. The problem is that the counts per bin are low and the peak is only 5-6 bins wide...
This is probably a stupid question , but,
It's easy enough to show that the mle of a poission distribution is ## \bar{x}##: ## \hat{ \lambda}= \bar{x} ##
But,I'm then looking at the generalized ratio test section of my book, multinomial, it esitmates ## \lambda ## for some data by ## \sum...
An experiment consists of giving a sequences of patients a risky treatment until two have died, and then recording N, the number who survived. If p is the proportion killed by the treatment, then the distribution of N is:
P(N=n)=((n+1)(1-p)^n)p^2

When looking for a maximum likelihood estimator for the Uniform distribution I noticed that a common method is to use an indicator function. My initial understanding is that the reason for that is for taking into account the region of ℝ that x produces - or not - a non-zero probability.
If I...
Hi! I was wondering
In my note we've a Corollary saying:
If T is sufficient for \Theta, the maximum likelihood estimate is a function of T.
where T is T(X_1,X_2,...X_n) and X is given by f(x|\Theta)
I was wondering, isn't every Maximum likelihood estimator a sufficient statistic?Thanks for...

I would like to determine the MLE for k in U(0,k) where U is the uniform pdf constant on the interval [0,k] and zero elsewhere. I would like this estimate in the case of missing data. To be specific, what is the MLE for k given the three draws X={1,3,*} where * is unknown.

P(n,tau) = [ [ (k*tau)^n ] / n! ] * exp(-k*tau)
Parameter k is the process of an unknown non random variable that I want to estimate.
I have determined that k^ML = [1 / (n*tau) ] sigma (xi)
