Statistical Methods for Speech Recognition
Frederick Jelinek

This book reflects decades of important research on the mathematical
foundations of speech recognition. It focuses on underlying statistical
techniques such as hidden Markov models, decision trees, the
expectation-maximization algorithm, information theoretic goodness
criteria, maximum entropy probability estimation, parameter and data
clustering, and smoothing of probability distributions. The author's goal
is to present these principles clearly in the simplest setting, to show the
advantages of self-organization from real data, and to enable the reader to
apply the techniques.
