Description Arguments Value

Description

Creates an object representing a collection of binomial mixture models. There is one model for each fixed number of components from 1 to some specified maximum. In particular each model is identified by a single number specifiying the number of components in the model. Models are naturally ordered by inclusion so that, for example, a model with 2 components comes before a model with 3 or more components.

Arguments

maxNumComponents

the maximum number of components allowed in a model, will create a hierarchy of all models with less than or equal to this number.

phi

parameter controlling the strength of the sBIC penalty.

Value
