Maximization step in the EM algorithm for parameterized Gaussian mixture models.
mstep(modelName, data, z, prior = NULL, warn = NULL, …)
A character string indicating the model. The help file for
mclustModelNames describes the available models.
A numeric vector, matrix, or data frame of observations. Categorical variables are not allowed. If a matrix or data frame, rows correspond to observations and columns correspond to variables.
A matrix whose
[i,k]th entry is the
conditional probability of the ith observation belonging to
the kth component of the mixture.
In analyses involving noise, this should not include the
conditional probabilities for the noise component.
Specification of a conjugate prior on the means and variances. The default assumes no prior.
A logical value indicating whether or not certain warnings
(usually related to singularity) should be issued when the
estimation fails. The default is given by
Catches unused arguments in indirect or list calls via
A list including the following components:
A character string identifying the model (same as the input argument).
A vector whose kth component is the mixing proportion for the kth component of the mixture model. If the model includes a Poisson term for noise, there should be one more mixing proportion than the number of Gaussian components.
The mean for each component. If there is more than one component, this is a matrix whose kth column is the mean of the kth component of the mixture model.
A list of variance parameters for the model.
The components of this list depend on the model
specification. See the help file for
"info" For those models with iterative M-steps
"VEV"), information on the iteration.
"WARNING" An appropriate warning if problems are
encountered in the computations.
