Hi,
I am experiencing some problems for a basic Maximum Likelihood estimation. FYI, I am working with the paper of Rose & Smith (http://epub.ub.uni-muenchen.de/1530/1/paper_141.pdf).

The problem is happening at the very beginning of the MLE procedure: how to "symbolically" sum of data?

In the result, Mathematica cannot distinguish that what is a constant and what is the variable within the sum, and hence will not be able to solve the max problem later. I attach the in- and output for you to see.

I think it has to do with my specification of data array but I really can't find... can somebody help me?

thanks a lot!!

Charles
