*PlotDensities[]* is not a standard built-in function and it does not 
belong to the standard add-ons. So the question is, "What is 
PlotDensities[] and where can one find it?

Does the functions/expressions model and estimate explicitly depends on 
the variables mu and sigma?

P.S. Is the PlotDensities[] function you use the same as the one one can 
find in Luke Froeb's "ML" package?

 From the author's website;

     Maximum Likelihood Estimation Software

         * ML is a Mathematica 3.0 notebook and package.  This is a set
           of maximum likelihood estimation routines with a collection
           of examples, including a multivariate logit with changing
           choice set..
