© 2021 Elsevier B.V.An invariant function approach for the computationally efficient (non-iterative and gridless) maximum likelihood (ML) estimation of unknown parameters is applied on the real-valued sinusoid frequency estimation problem. The main attraction point of the approach is its potential to yield a ML-like performance at a significantly reduced computational load with respect to conventional ML estimator that requires repeated evaluation of an objective function or numerical search routines. The numerical results indicate that the suggested estimator closely tracks the Cramer-Rao bound in the asymptotic region and performs very close to the ML estimator in other regions.
