(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Poisson RP: MLE of "k"

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)

I believe this is correct...

How do I determine if K^ML is biased?
