Iterative Scaling Algorithms and their Applications

Iterative scaling is a widely used method to solve maximum entropy problems.

There are many variant iterative scaling algorithms. In order to reconnect two often-used iterative scaling algorithms, my bachelor thesis categorizes the different types of algorithms and analyses their relations. Four different implemented algorithms are used to study and compare their convergence behaviour.
