MILES - maximum likelihood fitting for MATLAB
Rasmus Bro, Nicholas D. Sidiropoulos & Age K. Smilde
MILES (Maximum likelihood via Iterative Least squares EStimation) is a very simple principle for fitting maximum likelihood models using simple least squares algorithms. The principle is described in a recent paper and an earlier version is also available here.
These m-files given here provide examples on how to use the MILES principle specifically for PCA and for PARAFAC. Other models can be fitted equally simple by exchanging the model-fitting part with any other least squares algorithm.
