Abstract: In this paper a timesaving method is proposed for maximizing likelihood functions when the parameter space is subject to nonlinear constraints, expressible as second order polynomials. The suggested approach is especially attractive when dealing with systems with many parameters.

Keywords: Maximum likelihood; Multipel parameters; Nonlinear constraint
