I have a density function:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

f(t) = L * e^{-L(t-t0)}* u(t-t_{0})

where u(t) is the unit step function.

And I have a column vector X, which is randomly chosen samples from f(t):

X = [x_{1}x_{2}... x_{n}]^{T}

How can I estimate the unknown valuestand_{0}Lfrom thisXvector?
