frontier: Stochastic Frontier Analysis

Maximum Likelihood Estimation of Stochastic Frontier Production and Cost Functions. Two specifications are available: the error components specification with time-varying efficiencies (Battese and Coelli, 1992, <doi:10.1007/BF00158774>) and a model specification in which the firm effects are directly influenced by a number of variables (Battese and Coelli, 1995, <doi:10.1007/BF01205442>).
