Mixture of Normal distribution

Description

Random generation and density function for a finite mixture of univariate Normal distribution.

Usage

 
rmixnorm( n = 10, weight = 1, mean = 0, sd = 1 ) 

dmixnorm( x, weight = 1, mean = 0, sd = 1 ) 

Arguments

n

number of observations.

x

vector of quantiles.

weight

vector of probability weights, with length equal to number of components (k). This is assumed to sum to 1; if not, it is normalized.

mean

vector of means.

sd

vector of standard deviations.

Details

Sampling from finite mixture of Normal distribution, with density:

Pr(x|\underline{w}, \underline{μ}, \underline{σ}) = ∑_{i=1}^{k} w_{i} N(x|μ_{i}, σ_{i}).

Value

Generated data as an vector with size n.
