Hi,

Can someone help me and explain step-by-step how to partial differentiate the following log-likelihood (see picture) wrt. mu (the sign that looks like u).

Also, how to differentiate the same equation wrt. omega (the sign that looks like w).

Thank you

If I were to do the problem, I'll first simplify (to my eye only) as follows:

\(\displaystyle l_t(\theta) \ = -\frac{1}{2} * \left [ log (B) + \frac{(x_t - \mu)^2}{B}\right ] \) .... where B and x

_{t} are constants (for this instant)

Now differentiate above w.r.t. \(\displaystyle \mu\)

Please write back, with your work, for further help.
