Dear all,

I'm trying to estimate the parameters of a special case of a poisson
model, where the specified equation has an integral and several fixed
I think that the MLE command in STATS4 package could be a good choice,
but it's a little complicated. I've got some problems with the offset
and I don't understand some of the functions. Do you know where can I
find some explicit tutorial about a poisson regression with MLE or,
maybe better, about maximum likelyhood estimation?

Best wishes
