estimate_pars(m, pars = NULL)

Arguments

m

A reference class object that contains the data.

pars

default NULL. A vector or matrix (number of columns equal to the number of parameters) of parameters used to #' optimise over. Otherwise, for each value of xmin, the mle will be used, i.e. estimate_pars(m). For small samples, the mle may be biased.
