Hello, I'm very happy to see dnormmix in the JAGS package, as I think it will
meet my needs for conditional density estimation. However, I'm puzzled how to
use it. There don't seem to be any examples of its use, either in the
documentation or in the examples directories included in the package. Could
some please post or point me at a quick example? Thank you!
The lack of documentation and examples is due to a certain lack of confidence
in this module. The NormMix sampler can use up a lot of computing power
without delivering the large jumps that tempered transitions are supposed to
OK. If you're recommending I not use dnormmix for now, can you recommend an
alternative procedure or software tool for building conditional/hierarchical
Thanks! I'm very glad you and others are working on JAGS. The Windows-centric
nature of BUGS is pretty frustrating for me...
Finite mixture modelling isn't really my field. I got into it only because
such models present difficulties for the deviance information criterion. You
could try the Cluster view of CRAN for appropriate R packages:
