Hi R-users,
Recently, I use maxNR function to find maximizer. I have error appears as follows
Error in maxNRCompute(fn = fn, grad = grad, hess = hess, start = start, :
NA in the initial gradient
My code is
mu=2
s=1
n=300
library(maxLik)
set.seed(1004)
x<-rcauchy(n,mu,s)
loglik<-function(mu)
{
log(prod(dcauchy(x,mu,s)))
}
maxNR(loglik,start=median(x))$estimate
Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
Thanks,
Kate
