Qfun returns the complete log-likelihood that is used to calculate the fraction of missing information.


Qfun(theta, suff.stat, n)



A vector that contains the MLE E(W_1),E(W_2), var(W_1),var(W_2), and cov(W_1,W_2). Typically it is the element theta.em of an object of class ecoML.


A vector of sufficient statistics of E(W_1), E(W_2), var(W_1),var(W_2), and cov(W_1,W_2).


A integer representing the sample size.
