In particular, we have considered the maximization of the log-likelihood, of the profile log-likelihood, of the conditional profile log-likelihood and a method based on an index of kurtosis. The results of a simulation study seem to indicate the latter approach as the best.}, number={1}, journal={Statistica}, author={Mineo, Angelo M.}, year={2003}, month={Jan.}, pages={109–122} }
