st: unconstrained maximization in stata
I have been trying to maximize a multivariate function using the "amoeba"
and "quasi" commands. I found that these commands work very well on some
simpler functions but often produce "conformability error" messages on more
complicated functions. Also, sometimes amoeba will work great for a
particular function, but then if I change the value of just one of the
parameters, it starts producing error messages (even though the functional
form stayed the same).
How can i fix this problem? Is there another way to do unconstrained
maximization in Stata? Thanks a lot!
