## Maximum Likelihood Estimates of Linear Intensity Models

### Description

Perform the maximum likelihood estimates of linear intensity models of self-exciting point process with another point process input, cyclic and trend components.

### Usage

linlin(external, self.excit, interval, c, d, ax = NULL, ay = NULL, ac = NULL,
at = NULL, opt = 0, tmpfile = NULL, nlmax = 1000)


### Arguments

 external another point process data. self.excit self-exciting data. interval length of observed time interval of event. c exponential coefficient of lgp in self-exciting part. d exponential coefficient of lgp in input part. ax coefficients of self-exciting response function. ay coefficients of input response function. ac coefficients of cycle. at coefficients of trend. opt 0 : minimize the likelihood with fixed exponential coefficient c 1 : not fixed d. tmpfile a character string naming the file to write the process of minimizing. If "" print the process to the standard output and if NULL (default) no report. nlmax the maximum number of steps in the process of minimizing.

### Details

The cyclic part is given by the Fourier series, the trend is given by usual polynomial. The response functions of the self-exciting and the input are given by the Laguerre type polynomials (lgp), where the scaling parameters in the exponential function, say c and d, can be different. However, it is advised to estimate c first without the input component, and then to estimate d with the fixed c (this means that the gradient corresponding to the c is set to keep 0), which are good initial estimates for the c and d of the mixed self-exciting and input model.

Note that estimated intensity sometimes happen to be negative on some part of time interval outside the neighborhood of events. this take place more easily the larger the number of parameters. This causes some difficulty in getting the m.l.e., because the negativity of the intensity contributes to the seeming increase of the likelihood.

Note that for the initial estimates of ax(1), ay(1) and at(1), some positive value are necessary. Especially 0.0 is not suitable.

### Value
