Class: gmdistribution

Probability density function for Gaussian mixture distribution

Syntax

y = pdf(obj,X)

Description

y = pdf(obj,X) returns a vector y of length n containing the values of the probability density function (pdf) for the gmdistribution object obj, evaluated at the n-by-d data matrix X, where n is the number of observations and d is the dimension of the data. obj is an object created by gmdistribution or fitgmdist. y(I) is the pdf of observation I.

Construct a Gaussian Mixture Distribution

Create a gmdistribution distribution defining a two-component mixture of bivariate Gaussian distributions.

mu = [1 2;-3 -5];
sigma = cat(3,[2 0;0 .5],[1 0;0 1]);
p = ones(1,2)/2;
obj = gmdistribution(mu,sigma,p);

ezsurf(@(x,y)pdf(obj,[x y]),[-10 10],[-10 10])
