Nonparametric maximum likelihood estimators arise from either shape-constrained or penalised maximisation of the likelihood function. In this talk I give an overview of the mathematical ideas behind various aspects of the theory related to penalisation, covering existence, uniqueness, rates of convergence, and computational issues.
