about this item

This book details mixture model-based approaches to the clustering and classification of unlabelled observations. Chapters discuss Gaussian mixtures, mixtures of factor analyzers and their extensions, variable selection, and high-dimensional applications, as well as mixtures of distributions that parameterize concentration; mixtures of skewed distributions; mixtures of distributions that parameterize skewness and concentration, or tail weight; and mixtures of multiple scaled distributions. They also cover methods for clustering and classification of longitudinal data, cluster-weighted models, averaging mixture models, the definition of a cluster, and the existence of a best clustering and classification method.
