Particle swarm optimization in constrained maximum likelihood estimation a case study

Elvis Cui, Dongyuan Song, Weng Kee Wong

The aim of paper is to apply two types of particle swarm optimization, global best andlocal best PSO to a constrained maximum likelihood estimation problem in pseudotime anal-ysis, a sub-field in bioinformatics. The results have shown that particle swarm optimizationis extremely useful and efficient when the optimization problem is non-differentiable and non-convex so that analytical solution can not be derived and gradient-based methods can not beapplied.
