CensMFM-package | R Documentation |
It fits finite mixture models for censored or/and missing data using several multivariate distributions. Point estimation and asymptotic inference (via empirical information matrix) are offered as well as censored data generation. Pairwise scatter and contour plots can be generated. Possible multivariate distributions are the well-known normal, Student-t and skew-normal distributions. This package is an complement of Lachos, V. H., Moreno, E. J. L., Chen, K. & Cabral, C. R. B. (2017) <doi:10.1016/j.jmva.2017.05.005> for the multivariate skew-normal case.

Index: This package was not yet installed at build time.
The CensMFM package provides comprehensive tools for fitting and analyzing finite mixture models on censored and/or missing data using several multivariate distributions. This package supports the normal, Student-t, and skew-normal distributions, facilitating point estimation and asymptotic inference through the empirical information matrix. Additionally, it allows for the generation of censored data.
Key functions include:
fit.FMMSNC
: Fits finite mixtures of censored and/or missing multivariate distributions using an EM-type algorithm. This function supports skew-normal, normal, and Student-t distributions.
rMMSN.contour
: Generates pairwise scatter plots and contour plots for analyzing the relationships within the fitted models.
rMMSN
: Provides functionality to generate random realizations from a finite mixture of multivariate distributions, particularly useful for simulation studies involving censored data.
rMSN
: Focuses on generating random realizations from multivariate Skew-normal and Normal distributions.
This package serves as an extension and complement to the methodologies presented in the paper by Lachos, V. H., Moreno, E. J. L., Chen, K. & Cabral, C. R. B. (2017) <doi:10.1016/j.jmva.2017.05.005>, specifically for the multivariate skew-normal case.
