Coupled and separable iterations in nonlinear estimation

Smyth, G. K


This thesis deals with algorithms to fit certain statistical models. We are concerned with the interplay between the numerical properties of the algorithm and the statistical properties of the model fitted. Chapter 1 outlines some results, concerning the construction of tests and the convergence of algorithms, based on quadratic approximations to the likelihood surface. These include the relationship between statistical curvature and the convergence of the scoring algorithm, separable...[Show more]
