Scope note: Funciones construidas a partir de un modelo estadístico y un conjunto de datos observados que dan la probabilidad de esos datos en relación con diversos valores de los parámetros desconocidos del modelo. Esos valores de parámetros que aumentan al máximo la probabilidad son los estimadores de verosimilitud máxima de los parámetros.

Scope note: Functions constructed from a statistical model and a set of observed data which give the probability of that data for various values of the unknown model parameters. Those parameter values that maximize the probability are the maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters.
