Dear all,

I'm trying to estimate the parameters of a special case of a poisson model, where the specified equation has an integral and several fixed parameters.
I think that the MLE command in STATS4 package could be a good choice, but it's a little complicated. I've got some problems with the offset and I don't understand some of the functions. Do you know where can I find some explicit tutorial about a poisson regression with MLE and/or about maximum likelihood estimation with R?

Best wishes
