    Abstract: The aim of this study was to employ Maximum Likelihood (MLE) jointly with a numerical Method (Newton Raphson method) to obtain parameter estimates from the two-parameter Gamma model. The profile likelihood of the two-parameter Gamma model was also put into consideration. The methods were demonstrated using simulation studies and real life data cons... Show More

    Abstract: This paper focuses on the Asymptotic Classification Procedures in Two Group Discriminate Analysis with Multivariate Binary Variables. Two data patterns were simulated using the R-Software Statistical Analysis System 2.15.3 and was subjected to two linear classification namely; Location and Logistic Models. To judge the performance of these models, ... Show More
