I use NMinimize to optimize a likelihood function. The number of parameters included depends on the dimensions of a vector I pass. I would like to have Mathematica check the dimensions of the vector, declare the correct number of parameters for me, and then solve for them.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Right now, I have to hard code my notebook for each different size of vector I hand it. Is there anyway to have Mathematica either use anonymous variables, or declare parameter1, parameter2... parameterN variables for me, automatically, and use them?

Thanks
