This version introduces a new feature, Marquardt (1963) quadratic approximation control for Newton-Raphson related optimizers.
An "author-created version" of the paper "maxLik: A package for maximum likelihood estimation in R" (Computational Statistics 26(3), 2011, p. 443-458, written by Arne Henningsen and Ott Toomet) is freely available at Arne's website: https://absalon.itslearning.com/data/ku/103018/publications/maxLik.pdf
This is a bugfix release, improved BHHH handling and more informative error messages for numeric gradient
maxLik 1.0-2 was released today. It is mostly a bugfix release.
The article is finally published as Arne Henningsen and Ott Toomet: "maxLik: A package for maximum likelihood estimation in R", Computational Statistics Volume 26, Number 3, 443-458, DOI: 10.1007/s00180-010-0217-1
A paper that describes the maxLik package will soon be published in the journal "Computational Statistics". It is available on-line at:
The "maxLik" package version 0.7 is available on R-Forge and will soon be available in CRAN.
