Reparametrize mixture proportions
Re-parameterise the mixture proportions so that when there is more than a 2-point mixture, the proportions sum to 1.
A set of mixture proportions.
Is the last parameter provided, i.e. does sum(mix.prop)=1?
a vector of parameters
See Miller and Thomas for information on exactly how these are calculated. Thanks go to David Borchers for proposing the trick.
