Sul modo di vincolare la funzione di verosimiglianza quando si è in presenza di informazioni a priori approssimative

M. Barnabani
The penalty function method is a mathematical approach generally used in non linear programming and is based on the maximization of a (penalty) function obtained combining linearly through some coefficients called penalty parameters an objective function and the constraints expressed in quadratic form. If the objective function satisfies certain conditions about the continuity, the maximization of the penalty function produces a constrained solution only increasing indefinitely the penalty parameters while for finite values assigned to...
