Watch the # - I think you want * .

Also, this isn't the likelihood function for a NB unless you do something more with uu. As specified, since uu is a constant, it's a Poisson with an additional constant (and hence not identified).

I am new to ml command. I am getting an error: Unknown function (), when I run the following code for negative binomial count model. Is there any obvious error in the code which I seem to miss out.

The L function is -exp(lambda.ui).(lambda.ui)^yi/(yi)!

program define nbreg2
args lnf theta uu
quietly replace `lnf' = -exp(`theta')#`uu' + $ML_y1#(`theta'+ln(`uu')) - lnfact($ML_y1)
ml model lf nbreg2 (jdemh=price eff) ()
ml check
ml maximize
