I am searching for some good resources to understand the Duration Viterbi algorithm.

Does anyone knows a good resource to understand and learn how to model a Duration Viterbi Hidden Markov Chain Model ?

The algorithm is based on the Viterbi one, but the transition model consider also the duration of each state.

    $\begingroup$ Google "duration hidden Markov model" without the quotes...there are tons of relevant results, including the one you mentioned. In particular: hisashikobayashi.com/papers/… . It may not be the Viterbi algorithm, but it looked reasonable to me (though I only glanced at it for about a second). $\endgroup$ – Philip White Jan 18 '11 at 20:53

The best resource to understand how to model state duration in HMM, that I found is Rabiner's tutorial on hidden markov models.

Section D: Inclusion of Explicit State Duration Density in HMM.
