Hi there!

I have the following problem:

The following probability mass function is given:

It's convenient to write beta0 + beta1*xi = x'i (i should be subscript)*beta, where x' = (1 xi) and beta' = (beta0 beta1).

a) Find the log-likelihood function

b) Find the first order conditions for the maximum likelihood estimation.

c) Find the second derivative (the Hessian matrix) for the log-likelihood function.

Help anyone? Thanks in advance.
