I have a program of approximately the same vintage in my files on my home machine, but I am away from base at present.

The tricky part here is the confidence interval. I doubt that my program did anything about that. I am not clear without reading the literature whether you have enough information to get intervals.

some one told me find the maximum likelihood estimate of θ for the logarithmic series distribution and construct a 95% Confidence Interval for θ. there is no sample but i was told that there is a sample of 100 observations and the sum of the X is 381. if there is a sample or if i can simulate a sample, it is easy to find the theta but if there is no sample, can someone help me out? how can i write a program to estimate the theta and its 95% Confidence Interval?
