Abstract : Two problems of parametric statistics are investigated with a view to their application to nonsupervised pattern recognition. Each of the problems can be described as follows: given a random sample drawn from a finite mixture of probability functions, where each element of the mixture is of a known parametric form, determine the unknown parameters of the mixture, f(X). The problem is treated in two parts. In the first part, it is assumed that the function f(X) is known and the decomposition of f(X) into its components is discussed. The second part deals with the estimation of f(X) on the basis of a random sample drawn according to it. (Author)
