## Three Examples of Accurate Likelihood Inference

The modern theory of likelihood inference provides improved inferences in many parametric models, with little more effort than is required for application of standard first-order theory. We outline the relevant computations, and illustrate the calculations using a dilution assay, a zero-inflated Poisson regression model, and a short time series. In each case the effect of the higher order correction can be appreciable.
