FlexMix Version 2: Finite Mixtures with Concomitant Variables and Varying and Constant Parameters
The functionality of the Flexmix package was enhanced and concomitant variable models as well as varying and constant parameters for the component specific generalized linear regression models can be fitted.
FlexMix: An R package for finite mixture modelling
Finite mixture models are a popular method for modelling unobserved heterogeneity or for approximating general distribution functions. They are applied in a lot of different areas such as astronomy,
Identifiability of Finite Mixtures of Multinomial Logit Models with Varying and Fixed Effects
This paper analyzes the identifiability of a general class of finite mixtures of multinomial logits with varying and fixed effects, which includes the popular mult inomial logit and conditional logit models.
Mixtures of regression models with incomplete and noisy data
The proposed mixtures of regression models for contaminated incomplete heterogeneous data provide robust estimates of regression coefficients varying across latent subgroups even under the presence of missing values.
Modelling Background Noise in Finite Mixtures of Generalized Linear Regression Models
In this paper we show how only a few outliers can completely break down EM-estimation of mixtures of regression models. A simple, yet very effective way of dealing with this problem, is to use a

A robust fitting strategy is proposed that is based on the weighted likelihood methodology and exhibits a satisfactory behavior in terms of both fitting and classification accuracy, as confirmed by some numerical studies and real data examples.
Gaussian Parsimonious Clustering Models with Covariates
This paper addresses the equivalent aims of including covariates in Gaussian Parsimonious Clustering Models and incorporating parsimonious covariance structures into the Gaussian mixture of experts framework.
BayesBinMix: an R Package for Model Based Clustering of Multivariate Binary Data
The BayesBinMix package offers a Bayesian framework for clustering binary data with or without missing values by fitting mixtures of multivariate Bernoulli distributions with an unknown number of components using Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling.

mclust 5: Clustering, Classification and Density Estimation Using Gaussian Finite Mixture Models
This updated version of mclust adds new covariance structures, dimension reduction capabilities for visualisation, model selection criteria, initialisation strategies for the EM algorithm, and bootstrap-based inference, making it a full-featured R package for data analysis via finite mixture modelling.


Fitting Finite Mixtures of Linear Regression Models with Varying & Fixed Eects in R
A general model class of finite mixtures of linear regression models is presented. It allows (nested) varying and fixed effects for the regression coefficients and the variance. A combination of
FlexMix: A general framework for finite mixture models and latent class regression in R
FlexMix implements a general framework for fitting discrete mixtures of regression models in the R statistical computing environment and provides the E-step and all data handling, while the M-step can be supplied by the user to easily define new models.
Assessing a Mixture Model for Clustering with the Integrated Completed Likelihood
An assessing method of mixture model in a cluster analysis setting with integrated completed likelihood appears to be more robust to violation of some of the mixture model assumptions and it can select a number of dusters leading to a sensible partitioning of the data.
Identifiablity of Models for Clusterwise Linear Regression
The model choice and the interpretation of the parameters are discussed as well as the use of the identifiability concept for fixed partition models. The concept is generalized to "partial

This paper argues for the general use of random effect models, and illustrates the value of non-parametric maximum likelihood (NPML) analysis of multi-centre trials.
Concomitant-Variable Latent-Class Models
Abstract This article introduces and illustrates a new type of latent-class model in which the probability of latent-class membership is functionally related to concomitant variables with known
Generalizing Logistic Regression by Nonparametric Mixing
Abstract Logistic regression is a common technique for analyzing the effect of a covariate vector x on the number of successes y in m trials when y has a binomial distribution. But at times either
Generalized Linear Models
This is the Ž rst book on generalized linear models written by authors not mostly associated with the biological sciences, and it is thoroughly enjoyable to read.
Lexical Scope and Statistical Computing
The concept of scoping rules is discussed and how lexical scope can enhance the functionality of a language is shown.
