A robust algorithm for the simultaneous estimation of hierarchical logit models


Estimating simultaneous hierarchical logit models is conditional to the availability of suitable algorithms. Powerful mathematical programs are necessary to maximize the associated non-linear, non-convex, log-likelihood function. Even if classical methods (e.g. Newton-Raphson) can be adapted for relatively simple cases, the need of an e cient and robust… (More)
