LogL Procs
Estimate…: brings up a dialog to set estimation options, and to estimate the parameters of the log likelihood.
Make Model: creates an untitled model object out of the estimated likelihood specification.
Make Gradient Group: creates an untitled group of the gradients (first derivatives) of the log likelihood at the estimated parameter values. These gradients are often used in constructing Lagrange multiplier tests.
Update Coefs from LogL: updates the coefficient vector(s) with the estimates from the likelihood object. This procedure allows you to export the maximum likelihood estimates for use as starting values in other estimation problems.
