Jamshidian, Mortaza; Bentler, Peter M.
Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v24 n1 p21-41 Spr 1999
Describes the maximum likelihood (ML) estimation of mean and covariance structure models when data are missing. Describes expectation maximization (EM), generalized expectation maximization, Fletcher-Powell, and Fisher-scoring algorithms for parameter estimation and shows how software can be used to implement each algorithm.
