Expectation maximization (EM) algorithm is a powerful mathematical tool for estimating parameter of statistical models in case of incomplete data or hidden data. EM assumes that there is a relationship between hidden data and observed data, which can be a joint distribution or a mapping function. Therefore, this implies another implicit relationship between parameter estimation and data imputation. If missing data which contains missing values is considered as hidden data, it is very natural to handle missing data by EM algorithm. Handling missing data is not a new research but this report focuses on the theoretical base with detailed mathematical proofs for fulfilling missing values with EM. Besides, multinormal distribution and multinomial distribution are the two sample statistical models which are concerned to hold missing values. Citation: Loc Nguyen.
