Parameter estimation

One of the most important problems studied in the Ariana project-team is how to estimate the parameters that appear in the models. For probabilistic models, the problem is easily framed, but is not necessarily easy to solve, particularly in the case when it is necessary to extract simultaneously from the data both the information of interest and the parameters. For variational models, there are few methods available, and the problem is consequently more difficult.
