Applications to Likelihood Ratio and Maximum Likelihood Statistics

  • John E. Kolassa
Part of the Lecture Notes in Statistics book series (LNS, volume 88)


The breath of this material is similar to that of Reid (1988). Of primary concern will be approximation to densities and distribution functions of maximum likelihood estimators, likelihood ratio statistics, and Wald statistics. Bartlett’s correction for the distribution of likelihood ratio statistics is derived. Approximate ancillarity is also discussed.
