The only single-source--now completely updated and revised--to offer a unified treatment of the theory, methodology, and applications of the EM algorithm Complete with updates that capture developments from the past decade, The EM Algorithm and Extensions, Second Edition successfully provides a basic understanding of the EM algorithm by describing its inception, implementation, and applicability in numerous statistical contexts. In conjunction with the fundamentals of the topic, the authors discuss convergence issues and computation of standard errors, and, in addition, unveil many parallels and connections between the EM algorithm and Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms. Thorough discussions on the complexities and drawbacks that arise from the basic EM algorithm, such as slow convergence and lack of an in-built procedure to compute the covariance matrix of parameter estimates, are also presented. While the general philosophy of the First Edition has been maintained, this timely new edition has been updated, revised, and expanded to include: New chapters on Monte Carlo versions of the EM algorithm and generalizations of the EM algorithm New results on convergence, including convergence of the EM algorithm in constrained parameter spaces Expanded discussion of standard error computation methods, such as methods for categorical data and methods based on numerical differentiation Coverage of the interval EM, which locates all stationary points in a designated region of the parameter space Exploration of the EM algorithm's relationship with the Gibbs sampler and other Markov chain Monte Carlo methods Plentiful pedagogical elements-chapter introductions, lists of examples, author and subject indices, computer-drawn graphics, and a related Web site The EM Algorithm and Extensions, Second Edition serves as an excellent text for graduate-level statistics students and is also a comprehensive resource for theoreticians, practitioners, and researchers in the social and physical sciences who would like to extend their knowledge of the EM algorithm.

A practical guide for multivariate statistical techniques—now updated and revised In recent years, innovations in computer technology andstatistical methodologies have dramatically altered the landscapeof multivariate data analysis. This new edition of Methods forStatistical Data Analysis of Multivariate Observations explorescurrent multivariate concepts and techniques while retaining thesame practical focus of its predecessor. It integrates methods anddata-based interpretations relevant to multivariate analysis in away that addresses real-world problems arising in many areas ofinterest. Greatly revised and updated, this Second Edition provideshelpful examples, graphical orientation, numerous illustrations,and an appendix detailing statistical software, including the S (orSplus) and SAS systems. It also offers An expanded chapter on cluster analysis that covers advances inpattern recognition New sections on inputs to clustering algorithms and aids forinterpreting the results of cluster analysis An exploration of some new techniques of summarization andexposure New graphical methods for assessing the separations among theeigenvalues of a correlation matrix and for comparing sets ofeigenvectors Knowledge gained from advances in robust estimation anddistributional models that are slightly broader than themultivariate normal This Second Edition is invaluable for graduate students, appliedstatisticians, engineers, and scientists wishing to usemultivariate techniques in a variety of disciplines.
