NOTE ON THE MAXIMUM LIKELIHOOD CALIBRATION ON DIAL'S ASSIGNMENT METHOD

This note demonstrates that it is possible to obtain a maximum likelihood estimation of the theta parameter in dial's assignment method without repeated application of the assignment algorithm implicit in the procedure introduced recently by Robillard (1974). While the two methods produce comparable results, that outlined here greatly reduces sample requirements, and seems to reduce computation time, based on comparison with Robillard's example. /Author/TRRL/
