Summary

Computer Assisted Analysis of Mixtures summarizes developments in the field over the last 20 years . Along with advancements in theory and algorithms, it explores developments in biometric applications, such as meta-analysis, disease mapping, fertility studies, estimation of prevalence under clustering, and estimation of the distribution of survival times under interval-censoring. The approach is nonparametric for the mixing distribution, including leaving the number of components of the mixing distribution unknown. The text is particularly valuable to statisticians working with pharmaceutical clinical trials, epidemiologists, and social scientists.
