Maximum Likelihood Estimators Maximum likelihood estimators are deﬁned by maximizing the likelihood. For each y ∈ Y , let ˆ θ ( y ) = arg max θ lik( θ | y ) . ˆ θ : Y → ϑ y 7→ arg max θ lik( θ | y ) Since the logarithm is an increasing function, arg max θ ( θ | y ) = arg max θ lik( θ | y ) . The same arguments maximize both the likelihood and log likelihood. STAT 5102 (Theory of Statistics) Lecture 7 1 / 6

Unformatted text preview: I Let ˆ η be the mle of η . I Let g be a bijection, and let θ = g ( η ) . I The mle of θ is ˆ θ = g (ˆ η ) . 1. Densities determine the values of a likelihood function. 2. Relabeling distributions has no eﬀect on their densities.
