In page 29 of Maximum Likelihood Estimation with Stata (Gould andGoogle returns

Sribney 1999), the likelihood function for the linear regression model is

written as:

lnL=SUM (ln (phi((y-x*beta)/sigma)) - ln(sigma))

where phi() is the standard normal PDF.

My Question is: How the last term, ln(sigma), comes to the likelihood

function?

www.economics.unimelb.edu.au/subject_pages/ 2003/semester1/316-470/2regression.pdf

Take a look at the expression for loglikelihood, recalling that sigma is one of the parameters to be estimated in the regression problem.
