Observed-data loglikelihood for normal data

Description

Evaluates the observed-data loglikelihood function at a user-supplied value of the parameter. This function is useful for monitoring the progress of EM and data augmentation.

Usage

loglik.norm(s, theta)

Arguments

s

summary list of an incomplete normal data matrix created by the function prelim.norm.

theta

vector of normal parameters expressed on transformed scale in packed storage, such as one produced by the function em.norm.

Value

value of the observed-data loglikelihood

References

See Section 5.3.5 of Schafer (1996)

Examples

data(mdata)
s <- prelim.norm(mdata)   #do preliminary manipulations
thetahat <- em.norm(s)   #compute MLE
loglik.norm(s,thetahat)  #loglikelihood at the MLE
