Raftery and Co-Authors Publish New Book on Model-Based Clustering!

Posted: 5/8/2023 (CSDE Research)

CSDE Affiliate Adrian Raftery and co-authors have published their new book “Model-Based Clustering, Classification, and Density Estimation Using mclust in R” by Chapman & Hall. The book provides a systematic statistical approach to clustering, classification, and density estimation via mixture modeling. The model-based framework allows the problems of choosing or developing an appropriate clustering or classification method to be understood within the context of statistical modeling. The mclust┬ápackage for the statistical environment R is a widely adopted platform implementing these model-based strategies. The package includes both summary and visual functionality, complementing procedures for estimating and choosing models.
