abstract

  • A mixture of joint generalized hyperbolic distributions (MJGHD) is introduced for asymmetric clustering for high-dimensional data. The MJGHD approach takes into account the cluster-specific subspace, thereby limiting the number of parameters to estimate while also facilitating visualization of results. Identifiability is discussed, and a multi-cycle ECM algorithm is outlined for parameter estimation. The MJGHD approach is illustrated on two real data sets, where the Bayesian information criterion is used for model selection.
