Getting Started

The Maximum Likelihood MT 3.0 module contains a set of procedures for the solution of the maximum likelihood problem.

GAUSS version 18+ is required to use these routines.

The Maximum Likelihood MT 3.0 version number is stored in a global variable:


3x1 matrix the first element contains the major version number, the second element the minor version number, and the third element the revision number.

If you contact technical support, you may be asked for the version of your Maximum Likelihood MT license.


If there is a README.mlmt file, it contains any last-minute information on the Maximum Likelihood MT 3.0 procedures. Please read it before using them.


In order to use the procedures in Maximum Likelihood MT or MLMT module, the maxlikmt library must be active. This is done by including ‘cmlmt’ in the library statement at the top of your program or command file:

library cmlmt;

This enables GAUSS to find the MLMT procedures.
