In most introdcuctory courses in matlhematical statistics, students see examples and work problems in which the maximum likelihood estimate (MLE) of a parameter turns out to be either the sample meani, the sample variance, or the largest, or the smallest sample item. The purpose of this note is to provide ani example in wlhich the AILE is the sample median and a simple proof of this fact.

Solving the maximum clique problems on a class of network graphs, with applications to social networks Pollatos, Spyridon (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2008-06);Social network analysis frequently uses the idea of a clique in a network to identify key subgroups of highly-connected members of the network. We formulate the maximum clique problem on undirected graphs and develop two ...
