mdndist2(mixparams, t)
```function n2 = mdndist2(mixparams, t)
%MDNDIST2 Calculates squared distance between centres of Gaussian kernels and data
%
%	Description
%	N2 = MDNDIST2(MIXPARAMS, T) takes takes the centres of the Gaussian
%	contained in  MIXPARAMS and the target data matrix, T, and computes
%	the squared  Euclidean distance between them.  If T has M rows and N
%	columns, then the CENTRES field in the MIXPARAMS structure should
%	have M rows and N*MIXPARAMS.NCENTRES columns: the centres in each row
%	relate to the corresponding row in T. The result has M rows and
%	MIXPARAMS.NCENTRES columns. The I, Jth entry is the  squared distance
%	from the Ith row of X to the Jth centre in the Ith row of
%	MIXPARAMS.CENTRES.

% Build t that suits parameters, that is repeat t for each centre
t = kron(ones(1, ncentres), t);

% Do subtraction and square

% Reshape and sum each component
diff2 = reshape(diff2', dim_target, (ntarget*ncentres))';
n2 = sum(diff2, 2);

% Calculate the sum of distance, and reshape
% so that we have a distance for each centre per target
