Is the Latent Dirichlet Allocation topic posterior multimodal?

In fitting the Latent Dirichlet Allocation with collapsed Gibbs sampling one builds a sampled approximation to the topic posterior distribution, $P(z|w)$ and use that to calculate the topic and word ...

Multimodality of mixtures of more than two Normal distributions

Let $$\phi(x;\mu,\sigma) = \frac{1}{\sigma \sqrt{2\pi}} \exp \left(- \frac{(x-\mu)^2}{2\sigma^2}\right)$$ denote the Gaussian density function ($\sigma > 0$). Let $$f(x) = \sum_{i=1}^N p_i \...

Is this Bayesian model averaging?

A classical example of Bayesian model averaging (BMA) is the regression setup where the choice of different sets of covariates corresponds to different models $\mathcal{M}_k$, $k = 1, \ldots, K$, ...

Does it make sense to calculate MLE for multimodal distributions?

The simplest examples of multimodal distributions I've seen are mixtures, namely mixtures of normals. However, in this case, the Maximum Likelihood Estimator [MLE] doesn't make much sense. An example ...

Describe why a distribution might be multimodal?

Suppose that I visualized a distirbution and noticed that it was multimodal. For example, I collected the heights of a bunch of students. I notice that the distirbution is multimodal. How would I ...
