MetadataShow full item record
Classically, the invariant property of maximum likelihood estimators has been limited by one-to-one restrictions on the transformation. This thesis defines the Induced Likelihood Function and develops a theorem which may be used to extend the invariant property to estimation problems where the one-to-one restriction is dropped. It is shown that the theorem is applicable to the k dimensional estimation problem.
