## Maximum Likelihood Estimation

Observations from a probability distribution, depends on the parameters of that model. For example, given an unbiased coin with equalÂ probability of landing heads as well as tails, what is probability of observing the sequence "HHTH".Â Our knowledge from probability theory says that since the toss of a coin follows the binomial distribution, the probability of the observation should be 0.54 = 0.0625, but what if the coin was biased and the […]
