Expectation-Maximization resources


The seminal paper for EM is,

Maximum Likelihood from Incomplete Data via the EM Algorithm
A. P. Dempster; N. M. Laird; D. B. Rubin
Journal of the Royal Statistical Society. Series B (Methodological), Vol. 39,
No. 1. (1977), pp. 1-38.

but the famous one is,

Expectation-Maximization as a lowerbound maximization
Thomas P. Minka

probably an easier one based on Minka's tutorial,

The Expectation Maximization Algorithm
Frank Dellaert

I think the last one is really nice. Besides the EM formulas and examples, it
also explains the idea behind the EM approach and how EM works.
