pmcgd-package: pmcgd - Parsimonious Mixtures of Contaminated Gaussian...

Description Details Author(s) References See Also


This package allows for fitting, according to the expectation-conditional maximization algorithm, of the family of 14 parsimonious mixtures of contaminated Gaussian distributions discussed in Punzo & McNicholas (2013). Some likelihood-based model selection criteria can be adopted to select the best model in the family and the best number of mixture components.
