Maximum-likelihood estimation for hidden Markov models
AbstractHidden Markov models assume a sequence of random variables to be conditionally independent given a sequence of state variables which forms a Markov chain. Maximum-likelihood estimation for these models can be performed using the EM algorithm. In this paper the consistency of a sequence of maximum-likelihood estimators is proved. Also, the conclusion of the Shannon-McMillan-Breiman theorem on entropy convergence is established for hidden Markov models.
