### Implementation of a blocked Gibbs sampler for a mixture model with a Dirichlet-process prior

I am trying to understand and implement the blocked Gibbs sampler described on page 552 in Bayesian Data Analysis by Gelman et al. in the context of using a Dirichlet process as a prior in a mixture ...

### Clarifying Dirichlet Process Mixture Probability Terms

Suppose I have a Dirichlet Process Mixture model defined as follows: $\alpha \sim G(a,b)\\ \pi|\alpha \sim \text{Dir}(\alpha)\\ z|\pi \sim \text{Cat}(\pi)\\$ where $G$ is just a standard Gamma ...

### Any connections between mixed model and mixture of experts model?

Given data $<y_i, X_i>$ for $i \in \{1, 2, 3, \dots n\}$ ($n$ samples), and we are interested in knowning the relationship between $y$ and $X$. In the simplest manner, we can solve for $\beta$ ...
