Review Questions:

  1. With higher number of model parameters, you can always get a good fit – why should you minimize the number of parameters
  2. Least square method is a subset of maximum likelihood approach to data fitting. Is this statement correct?
  3. What aspect of the distribution function does Cox-Oakes method emphasize?
  4. Can MLE be used for any distribution function?
  5. How would you change the MLE condition if you had 3 independent parameters to estimate?
  6. Does increase in model parameters increase chances of passing c2 test?
  7. How does the methods affected by censored data (e.g. , TDDB test yet to finish?)
