** Next:** Simulations using ``ideal data''
** Up:** mlbmb
** Previous:** Maximum likelihood methods

Monte Carlo methods can be used to investigate properties of the
distributions of random variables.
Here we will study the properties
of the derived maximum likelihood estimators in two interesting
cases: 1) using distances drawn directly from the proposed
distribution (equation (3)), and 2) using distances between points
in reconstructed phase space, using time series of a (simulated)
chaotic system.
