estimates the parameters of a `k`

-component mixture of symmetric stable distributions, Teimouri et al. (2018) <doi.org/10.1080/03610918.2017.1288244>. Having `k`

and given the vector of initial values of entire parameter space, it uses some type of the EM algorithm (ECME) to estimate the parameters of mixture of symmetric stable distributions.

The set of data, used here, is the velocities of 82 distant galaxies, diverging from our own galaxy, called here galaxy. These data are available at `https://people.maths.bris.ac.uk/mapjg/mixdata`

. We note that `ufitstab.sym.mix()`

is robust with respect to the initial values.

# In what follows, we apply the EM algorithm to estimate the parameters of the
# mixture of symmetric stable distributions. For this, the initial values for
# fitting a three-component mixture of symmetric stable distribution to the
# galaxy data are: (0.1,0.35,0.55) for weight vector, (1.2,1.2,1.2) for tail
# index vector, (1,1,1) for scale vector, and (8,20,22) for the location vector.
