Newton-Raphson With Reset - DRAFT VERSION


In situations where the Newton-Raphson algorithm fails to yield a significant improvement in the log likelihood function, the user has the option of specifying that the algorithm reverts to taking a steepest ascent step. This optimization method is known as the Newton-Raphson with reset.
