I am analyzing animal movement pattern using levy flight pattern and want
to fit power function to observed data and estimate exponent using Maximum
Likelihood Estimation.

I am using

mle(lff, start = list(mu = 1))

where x is the observed data.

I am getting following error

Error in solve.default(oout$hessian) :
  Lapack routine dgesv: system is exactly singular: U[1,1] = 0

This is first time i am writing function and I am as good at algebra
as brick is good at flying.

Thank you in advance for your help.
