## Find the Wilks Confidence Interval Lower Bound from the Given 2-d Empirical Likelihood Ratio Function

### Description

This function is a sister function to findU2d( ). It uses simple search algorithm to find the lower 95% Wilks confidence limits based on the log likelihood function supplied. The likelihood have two parameters: beta1, beta2 and the the confidence interval is for a 1-d parameter defined by Pfun(beta1, beta2).

### Usage

findL2d(NPmle, ConfInt, LogLikfn, Pfun, dataMat, level=3.84)


### Arguments

 NPmle a vector containing the two NPMLE: beta1 hat and beta2 hat. ConfInt a vector of length 2. These are APPROXIMATE length of confidence intervals, as initial guess. LogLikfn a function that takes input of beta=(beta1, beta2) and dataMat, and output the log likelihood value. Pfun A function of 2 variables: beta1 and beta2. Must be able to take a vector input. Example: Pfun(x1, x2)= x1. dataMat a matrix of data. for the function LogLikfn. level Confidence level. Default to 3.84 (95 percent).

### Details

Basically we repeatedly testing the value of the parameter, until we find those which the -2 log likelihood value is equal to 3.84 (or other level, if set differently).

### Value

A list with the following components:

 Lower the lower confidence bound for Pfun. minParameterNloglik Final values of the 2 parameters, and the log likelihood.
