Stochastic Approximation of Expectation Maximization Methods in Pumas
SAEM methods possess excellent statistical convergence properties as well as the ability to provide an estimator close to the maximum likelihood estimate. This method provides another option available to users in addition to FO/FOCE/FOCEI estimation methods. Users can now use SAEM, FO, FOCEI, Laplace estimation methods in Pumas. Come learn about the fastest SAEM implementation and how to use it in Pumas. You can seamlessly feed the final estiamtes from SAEM to your FOCEI runs.
