EMfit: An Infrastructure for Latent Variable Model Fitting using EM Algorithms

The package contains the boilerplate code for estimating latent variable models by maximum marginal likelihood using EM algorithms. The code is generic and thus not optimised for particular models.

The package is available not (yet?) available from CRAN but only on GitHub.

If you have the package devtools installed, you can install the package by

library(devtools)
install_github("melff/EMfit")

With package githubinstall installed, you can install the package by

library(githubinstall)
githubinstall("EMfit")
