Hi all,

I’ve been into Julia for a week now. I managed to transfer all my code from R to Julia and the results I obtain in Julia are what I expect.

However, when I try to obtain the maximum likelihood estimates from my function (which doesn’t have a closed form expression, it is constructed from numerical integration basically) using Optim.optimize, it immediately returns NaN, when I know it can’t be NA because I do get results in R.

I get this error

```

Do you know what is happening or if there is any other package that I can use?

Many thanks
