An R package accompanying the paper Projection pursuit based on Gaussian mixtures and evolutionary algorithms by Luca Scrucca and Alessio Serafini (2018).
You can install the released version of
ppgmmga from CRAN:
or the development version from GitHub:
# install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("luca-scr/ppgmmga", build = TRUE, build_opts = c("--no-resave-data", "--no-manual"))
The methodology implemented in the package is describe in the paper referenced below.
Usage of the main functions and some examples are included in the vignette A quick tour of ppgmmga, which is available as
