Babak Oskooei:
the command -ml- maximizes a (likelihood) function with 
Newton-Raphson. An excellent desciption on how to use 
this set of commands is the book Maximum Likelihood 
Estimation with Stata by William Gould, Jeffrey Pitblado, 
and William Sribney. It also contains many examples. 
You can obtain it from the Stata bookstore.

Subject: st: Newton-Raphson method 

I have a function that I want to solve using the
Newton-Raphson method in Stata. I would be grateful if
you could give me references and let me know where I
can find sample programes to use as guidlines as I am
not very much experienced in Stata.
