    Hello, well basically this is the question:

    Ei=1 when ai+BAi+ui>0
    And Ei=0 otherwise

    Now suppose ui is a uniform random variable taking values between -0.5 and 0.5. Therefore, the p.d.f. of u is given by f (u) = 1 .for u ∈ [-0.5, 0.5], and the c.d.f. of u is given by F (u) = U + 0.5.
    a) Write the log-likelihood function for the case u is uniform.
    b) What are the first order conditions from maximizing this likelihood?
    Completely lost on how to do the likelihood let alone the log likelihood for uniform distribution.

    Well what is the pdf for the uniform? Then how is the likelihood function defined?

    Once you know those you can do the likelihood for uniform and just take logs for a)

    Anyway, to check:
