Many other popular estimation techniques can be cast in terms of GMM optimization:

  • Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) is equivalent to GMM with moment conditions:
  • Generalized Least Squares (GLS)
  • Instrumental variables regression (IV)
  • Non-linear Least Squares (NLLS):
  • Maximum likelihood estimation (MLE):

Famous quotes containing the word scope:

    Every person is responsible for all the good within the scope of his abilities, and for no more, and none can tell whose sphere is the largest.
    Gail Hamilton (1833–1896)

    As the creative adult needs to toy with ideas, the child, to form his ideas, needs toys—and plenty of leisure and scope to play with them as he likes, and not just the way adults think proper. This is why he must be given this freedom for his play to be successful and truly serve him well.
    Bruno Bettelheim (20th century)

    A country survives its legislation. That truth should not comfort the conservative nor depress the radical. For it means that public policy can enlarge its scope and increase its audacity, can try big experiments without trembling too much over the result. This nation could enter upon the most radical experiments and could afford to fail in them.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)
