Description

Estimates (greedily) parameters for univariate Student's t mixture using Expectation Maximisation algorithm, implemented according to Chen et al. (2004). The algorithm relies upon smm_fit_em_GNL08() to estimate mixture parameters iteratively.

Usage

1
2
    smm_fit_em_CWL04( x, p, collect.history = FALSE, debug = FALSE,
                      ... )

Arguments

x

data vector

p

initialisation vector of 4*n parameters, where n is number of mixture components. Structure of p vector is p = c( A1, A2, ..., An, mu1, mu2, ..., mun, k1, k2, ..., kn, ni1, ni2, ..., nin ), where Ai is the proportion of i-th component, mui is the center of i-th component, ki is the concentration of i-th component and nii is the degrees of freedom of i-th component.

collect.history

logical. If set to TRUE, a list of parameter values of all iterations is returned.

debug

flag to turn the debug prints on/off.

...

parameters passed to smm_fit_em_GNL08().

Value

A list.
