Zhou, B. B.; Tarawmeh, M.; Wang, P.; Chu, D.; Wang, C.; Zomaya, Albert Y.; Brent, Richard


An interesting and important, but largely ignored question associated with the ML method is whether there exists only a single maximum likelihood point for a given phylogenetic tree. Mike Steel presented a simple analytical result to argue that the ML point is not unique [11]. However, his view so far attracts only little attention. Though many researchers believe that multiple maximum likelihood points may exist for certain phylogenetic trees, most existing phylogenetic construction programs...[Show more]
