"This Monograph, "Mixture Model-Based Classification" is an excellent book, highly relevant to every statistician working with classification problems."
International Society for Clinical Biostatistics
"This monograph is an extensive introduction of mixture models with applications in classification and clustering. . . The author did good work by organizing the materials in a very natural way as well as presenting methods and algorithms in great detail. Moreover, many case studies help the reader understand and appreciate the methodologies presented."
Journal of the American Statistical Association
"I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about application of mixture models to classification problems."
