The Neerven estimator

The maximum likelihood estimator Van Neerven [van Neerven, 1987] derived is similar to that of Takens; however, multiple censoring takes place in subdivisions of the scaling region $]0,r_{u}]$ so that some information is lost. Thus, the variance of this estimator will be larger than eq. (5.14).
