EM algorithm convergence KF log likelihood decrease

  1. Mar 1, 2013 #1
    Hi everyone,

    Im running the KF to learn parameters of a model, the log likelihood of the p(Y_{k}|Y_{k-1}), however decreases.

    Can anyone advise, does this mean my implementation is wrong or can this just be the case.

    Advice appreciated

    Hey MikeLowri123.

    If you are using the EM to fit some parameters for a parametric distribution, have you tried grabbing some code from a repository like the R platform and seeing the results?
