On the Posterior Distribution of the Number of Components in a Finite Mixture by Agostino Nobile

Abstract

The posterior distribution of the number of components k in a finite mixture satisfies a set of inequality constraints. The result holds irrespective of the parametric form of the mixture components and under assumptions on the prior distribution weaker than those routinely made in the literature on Bayesian analysis of finite mixtures. The inequality… (More)
