Examen

I was visiting Jean-Michel Marin over the past two days in order to finalise our paper on ABC model choice and I noticed this very special exam on his wall. It was a copy made by his son, who is currently learning his letters, of a true exam Jean-Michel was grading a few weeks ago. Even though the picture is over-zoomed, it is possible to identify the (correct!) resolution of the MLE of the upper bound of a uniform distribution. A very cute rendering that also qualifies as Art brut! (In the spirit of Pierre Ménard, Borges’ short story about re-creation)
