Abstract: The paper illustrates a solution of the problem of choosing a root from
estimating equations which have multiple roots. This solution is applicable also to
multivariate parameter estimation. In the univariate parameter case, the consistency of the
-estimator is illustrated in a way which shows how other estimation methods can easily
invoke the same technique. Multivariate parameter extensions are then indicated.
