I want to perform a non-linear maximization using maximium  likelihood estimation on this equation:
llik[i] = log(param[1]) - log(gamma(param[2]/param[1])) +
            2 * param[2] * log(param[3]) - log(t[i] + t0) - (param[3]^2/(t[i] +

where t pulls its data from a specified source, either a variable in stata or from an excel spread sheet.

Is this possible to do in stata?
