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 ..."

The Limited Information Maximum Likelihood Estimator as an Angle ∗
, 2009
"... When an econometric structural equation includes two endogenous variables and their coefficients are normalized so that their sum of squares is 1, it is natural to express them as the sine and cosine of an angle. The Limited Information Maximum Likelihood (LIML) estimator of this angle when the erro ..."

Limited information estimators and exogeneity tests for simultaneous probit models
, 1988
"... A twostep maximum likelihood procedure is proposed for estimating simultaneous probit models and is compared to alternative limited information estimators. Conditions under which each estimator attains the CramerRao lower bound are obtained. Simple tests for exogeneity based on the new twostep es ..."

Paml 4: Phylogenetic analysis by maximum likelihood
 Mol. Biol. Evol
, 2007
"... PAML, currently in version 4, is a package of programs for phylogenetic analyses of DNA and protein sequences using maximum likelihood (ML). The programs may be used to compare and test phylogenetic trees, but their main strengths lie in the rich repertoire of evolutionary models implemented, which ..."

A Simple, Fast, and Accurate Algorithm to Estimate Large Phylogenies by Maximum Likelihood
, 2003
"... The increase in the number of large data sets and the complexity of current probabilistic sequence evolution models necessitates fast and reliable phylogeny reconstruction methods. We describe a new approach, based on the maximumlikelihood principle, which clearly satisfies these requirements. The ..."

of the topology and branch lengths, only a few iterations are sufficient to reach an optimum. We used extensive and realistic computer simulations to show that the topological accuracy of this new method is at least as high as that of the existing maximumlikelihood programs and much higher than the performance

A maximum likelihood approach to continuous speech recognition
 IEEE Trans. Pattern Anal. Machine Intell
, 1983
"... AbstractSpeech recognition is formulated as a problem of maximum likelihood decoding. This formulation requires statistical models of the speech production process. In this paper, we describe a number of statistical models for use in speech recognition. We give special attention to determining the ..."

Maximum Likelihood Linear Transformations for HMMBased Speech Recognition
 COMPUTER SPEECH AND LANGUAGE
, 1998
"... This paper examines the application of linear transformations for speaker and environmental adaptation in an HMMbased speech recognition system. In particular, transformations that are trained in a maximum likelihood sense on adaptation data are investigated. Other than in the form of a simple bias ..."

Maximum Likelihood Phylogenetic Estimation from DNA Sequences with Variable Rates over Sites: Approximate Methods
 J. Mol. Evol
, 1994
"... Two approximate methods are proposed for maximum likelihood phylogenetic estimation, which allow variable rates of substitution across nucleotide sites. Three data sets with quite different characteristics were analyzed to examine empirically the performance of these methods. The first, called ..."
