Dear Sir\ Madam
I am trying to maximise a complicated loglikelihood function via EM algorithm
which consists of two step "E-step and M-step"and in this case I need to
maximize the expected of like lihood function " which I get from E- step" and
take those estimates of parameter to update the E-step and repate these till
convargence has been met. So I need to know if I control the number of iterlim
in maxLik or optim Package by puting this number equals to one to maximize
M-step and getting just the estimates of parameter for one iteration and hence
use them to update the E-step and again maximaize M-step by using maxLik or
optim by contoling the number of limiter and putting the number equals to 1
is it true and acceptance? I mean if I do this my results can be
reasonable?. please I am waiting your response.
