asa189


asa189, a FORTRAN90 code which does a maximum likelihood estimation of the parameters of a Beta Binomial Probability Density Function (PDF), by D Smith.

The code is Applied Statistics Algorithm 189.

This algorithm analyzes data that was generated by a beta binomial probability density function, and tries to estimate the values of the parameters that determing that PDF.
