The code below nearly gets there. From the plot of the Wald statistic
against alpha, the smallest element of alpha (on this coarse grid) is
alpha_hat = 29. I could

not work out how to use the minimum function to extract this value. I tried
things like --- scalar alpha_hat = min(alpha) --- but that won't work.
What's the trick

You could try:

sort  W
scalar alpha_hat = alpha[1]

or

sum W, meanonly
if W == r(min) {
	 scalar alpha_hat = alpha
}
