This program, for the CONVEX, computes the variables of the likelihood function, i.e. the values of $N_l$, $N_s$ and the $\sum \ln(r_{i})$. using distances obtained from a specified exponential distribution. This procedure is repeated to obtain a set of Monte Carlo trials of the dimension and entropy estimates as functions of the embedding dimension (using MLDK2MCC). The difference with MLDK2SIM is the fact that MLDK2MCE keeps the total number of distances constant, but varies the embedding dimension.
