Additional Information
Cluster analysis can be lucidly defined as the process of sorting similar objects into groups. This talk discusses a mixture of shifted asymmetric Laplace (SAL) distributions, which facilitate clustering in situations where the clusters are not symmetric. The mixture of SAL distributions is fitted using a variant of the expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm and we demonstrate this novel mixture modelling approach using simulated and real data sets.
