# Questions tagged [finite-mixture-model]

Finite mixture model represents the presence of subpopulations within an overall population and describes the data in terms of mixture distribution. Finite mixture models are commonly used for model-based clustering, but they can be used also for other problems, like cluster-wise regression, mixture of generalized linear models and other mixtures. Finite mixture models for binary and categorical data are known under the name of latent class analysis.

### solution to mixture CDF / inverse CDF of finite mixture

I am currently numerically solving the follwing equation, which is a convex combination/finite mixture of two marginal CDFs $F(x)$ and $G(x)$ (actually they are joint CDFs but all arguments but x are ...
