LogL Procs

• Estimate…: brings up a dialog to set estimation options, and to estimate the parameters of the log likelihood.

• Make Model: creates an untitled model object out of the estimated likelihood specification.

• Make Gradient Group: creates an untitled group of the gradients (first derivatives) of the log likelihood at the estimated parameter values. These gradients are often used in constructing Lagrange multiplier tests.

• Update Coefs from LogL: updates the coefficient vector(s) with the estimates from the likelihood object. This procedure allows you to export the maximum likelihood estimates for use as starting values in other estimation problems.
