BDMLIB
Estimate Dirichlet Mixture Weights
BDMLIB
is a FORTRAN77 library which
estimates the weights
W in a Dirichlet mixture PDF (probability density function)
by analyzing events that were generated by the mixture.
To generate "events", first one of the component Dirichlet PDF's
is chosen based on the weights W. Then the Dirichlet PDF, whose
parameters ALPHA are known, is used to generate a probability
vector P. This probability vector is then used with the multinomial
PDF to generate an integer vector X, which is the result.
Now, we assume that we are watching this process, and have no
knowledge of the weights W. Simply by observing the result vectors
X, we will try to estimate the values of the W's.
A pseudoBayesian process is used to do this.
