2018-08-27 01:55:03 -0600 | asked a question | Check if Hessian is Postive Semi-Definite I have a log-likelihood function, and I am trying to determine if it is convex or concave to see if I can use standard optimization techniques. So I am trying to determine if the hessian is positive (or negative) semi-definite. This is what I have done: However, I am getting this error: How can I fix this so I can get what I want? Is there a better way to do this? |
