Actually, I read many articles and blogs that EM converges to local maxima can someone help me that it converges to local maxima always? Can we get a global maximum?

    $\begingroup$ Are you asking if it can ever happen? Because there are trivial answers: if there is only global maxima and no local ones, or by chance. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Actually I want to know can you give me some examples or proof where we can find Global maxima by using EM algorithm? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ One more question can we proof or guaranteed say that EM always converge to a local maxima? $\endgroup$
