Abstract:     
In this paper, we consider the parametric estimation problem for continuous time stochastic processes described by general first-order nonlinear stochastic differential equations of the Ito type. We characterize the likelihood function of a discretely-sampled set of observations as the solution to a functional partial differential equation. The consistency and asymptotic normality of the maximum likelihood estimators are explored, and several illustrative examples are provided.
