comment Solving derivative of cumulative normal distribution log likelihood
@chris i think after your last edit the answer ( that there is no analytic solution to the MLE of a normal cumulative distribution) is not so clear anymore. Would you consider including the previous normcdf results also?

@chris so this means that the only way to fit a dataset with normcdf is numerical optimization?

@wolfies i mean the generic cumulative normal distribution, CDF[NormalDistribution[[Mu], [Sigma]], x]

@chris I tried it with Thread but it still doesn't work, also it works for other distributions such as Poisson, so if Thread is just for the syntax, i don't think I have a syntax issue
