# summary.npEM: Summarizing non- and semi-parametric multivariate mixture... In mixtools: Tools for Analyzing Finite Mixture Models

## Description

`summary` method for class `npEM`.

## Usage

 ```1 2 3 4``` ```## S3 method for class 'npEM' summary(object, ...) ## S3 method for class 'summary.npEM' print(x, digits=3, ...) ```

## Arguments

 `object,x` an object of class `npEM` such as a result of a call to `npEM` `digits` Significant digits for printing values `...` further arguments passed to or from other methods.

## Details

`summary.npEM` prints means and variances of each block for each component. These quantities might not be part of the model, but they are estimated nonparametrically based on the posterior probabilities and the data.

## Value

The function `summary.npEM` returns a list of type `summary.npEM` with the following components:

 `n` The number of observations `m` The number of mixture components `B` The number of blocks `blockid` The block ID (from 1 through B) for each of the coordinates of the multivariate observations. The `blockid` component is of length r, the dimension of each observation. `means` A B x m matrix giving the estimated mean of each block in each component. `variances` Same as `means` but giving the estimated variances instead.
