Abstract

Summary

This paper points out an error in Davidov and Iliopoulos's (Biometrika100, 778–80) proof of convergence of an iterative algorithm for the proportional likelihood ratio model. It is shown that the iterative algorithm increases the likelihood in each iteration and converges under mild additional conditions when the odds ratio function is bounded.
