A GENERALIZED QUASI-LIKELIHOOD METHOD FOR ESTIMATION OF
by A. A. Abed Al-Aziz, S .M. El- Sayed and Y. M. Selim.
In this paper, generalized quasi-likelihood estimation
fora semi-parametric model with a dependent structure is developed
incorporating knowledge of skewness and kurtosis. This is a
generalization of a similar idea proposed for independent observations
by Godambe and Thompson (1989). The generalized quasi-score function
is constructed on the basis of non-orthogonal estimating function
invoking the method of Durairajan (1992).
