Maximum Likelihood Estimation for Probability Functions from Data Sets

A routine for parameter estimation for any probability density or mass function implemented in R via maximum likelihood (ML) given a data set. This routine is a wrapper function specifically developed for ML estimation. There are included optimization procedures such as 'nlminb' and 'optim' from base package, and 'DEoptim' Mullen (2011) . Standard errors are estimated with 'numDeriv' Gilbert (2011) <> or the option 'Hessian = TRUE' of 'optim' function.
