Fisher''s scoring method, Advanced Statistics

This is an alternative to the Newton-Raphson technique for optimization (finding out the minimum or the maximum) of some function, which includes replacing the matrix of second derivatives of function with respect to the parameters, by corresponding matrix of expected values. This technique will often converge from the starting values further away from optimum than will Newton-Raphson.
