Maximum likelihood from incomplete data via the EM algorithm
 JOURNAL OF THE ROYAL STATISTICAL SOCIETY, SERIES B
, 1977
"... A broadly applicable algorithm for computing maximum likelihood estimates from incomplete data is presented at various levels of generality. Theory showing the monotone behaviour of the likelihood and convergence of the algorithm is derived. Many examples are sketched, including missing value situat ..."

Databases and FiniteModel Theory
 IN DESCRIPTIVE COMPLEXITY AND FINITE MODELS
, 1997
"... Databases provide one of the main concrete scenarios for finitemodel theory within computer science. This paper presents an informal overview of database theory aimed at finitemodel theorists, emphasizing the specificity of the database area. It is argued that the area of databases is a rich sourc ..."

THEORIES IN FINITE MODEL THEORY
, 1999
"... First order theories arise in finite model theory as `limit theories'. For example the almost sure theory of finite Lstructures is (in the presence of a 01 law) a complete first order theory. In [2] we have exploited stability theoretic properties of the almost sure theory to answer questions ..."

Preservation Theorems in Finite Model Theory
, 1995
"... We develop various aspects of the finite model theory of Lk (9) andLk 1!(9). We establish the optimality of normal forms for Lk 1!(9) over the class of finite structures and demonstrate separations among descriptive complexity classes within Lk 1!(9). We establish negative results concerning preser ..."

The Finite Model Theory Toolbox of a database theoretician
, 2009
"... For many years, finite model theory was viewed as the backbone of database theory, and database theory in turn supplied finite model theory with key motivations and problems. By now, finite model theory has built a large arsenal of tools that can easily be used by database theoreticians without goin ..."

FiniteModel Theory  A Personal Perspective
 Theoretical Computer Science
, 1993
"... Finitemodel theory is a study of the logical properties of finite mathematical structures. This paper is a very personalized view of finitemodel theory, where the author focuses on his own personal history, and results and problems of interest to him, especially those springing from work in his Ph ..."
