On Convergence Problems of the EM Algorithm for Finite Gaussian Mixtures


Efficient probability density function estimation is of primary interest in statistics. A popular approach for achieving this is the use of finite Gaussian mixture models. Based on the expectation-maximization algorithm, the maximum likelihood estimates of the model parameters can be iteratively computed in an elegant way. Unfortunately, in some cases the… (More)
