I am fitting a Gaussian Mixture model:
gm = GaussianMixture(n_components=K) gm.fit(features)

When I do:


All of the scores, which are supposed to be: "weighted log probabilities for each sample." are positive.
Are they actually log-probabilities?

They supposedly are probability densities, not probabilities.

A probability density can be larger than 1, hence the log can be positive.

The documentation of sklearn should probably be fixed to reflect this.
