Description

rmixture simulates iid draws from a Multivariate Mixture of Normals

Usage

rmixture(n, pvec, comps)

Arguments

n

number of observations

pvec

ncomp x 1 vector of prior probabilities for each mixture component

comps

list of mixture component parameters

Details

comps is a list of length ncomp with ncomp = length(pvec).
comps[[j]][[1]] is mean vector for the jth component.
comps[[j]][[2]] is the inverse of the cholesky root of Σ for jth component

Value

A list containing:

x:

an n x length(comps[[1]][[1]]) array of iid draws

z:

an n x 1 vector of indicators of which component each draw is taken from
