ridgeline: Ridgeline computation

Description

Computes (alpha*Sigma1^-1+(1-alpha)*Sigma2^-1)^-1* alpha*(Sigma1^-1*mu1)+(1-alpha)*(Sigma2^-1*mu2)) as required for the computation of the ridgeline (Ray and Lindsay, 2005) to find all density extrema of a two-component Gaussian mixture with mean vectors mu1 and mu2 and covariance matrices Sigma1, Sigma2.

Usage

ridgeline(alpha, mu1, mu2, Sigma1, Sigma2)

Arguments

alpha

numeric between 0 and 1.

mu1

mean vector of component 1.

mu2

mean vector of component 2.

Sigma1

covariance matrix of component 1.

Sigma2

covariance matrix of component 2.

Value

A vector. See above.
