In the current lecture, we discuss the baum welch algorithm and introduce topology modeling. We already saw an example of problem 2 in chapter 8. As a concrete example, we prove a linear rate of convergence for a hidden markov. Suppose we have a chicken from which we collect eggs at noon everyday. Convergence it can be proven that if current estimate is replaced by these new estimates then the likelihood of the data will not decrease i.
