Representation of a Gaussian mixture model probability distribution. This class allows to estimate the parameters of a Gaussian mixture distribution.
Read more in the User Guide.
New in version 0.18.
Parameters: n_components : int, defaults to 1.
The number of mixture components.
covariance_type : {‘full’, ‘tied’, ‘diag’, ‘spherical’},
defaults to ‘full’.
String describing the type of covariance parameters to use. Must be one of:
'full' (each component has its own general covariance matrix), 'tied' (all components share the same general covariance matrix), 'diag' (each component has its own diagonal covariance matrix), 'spherical' (each component has its own single variance).
tol : float, defaults to 1e3.
The convergence threshold. EM iterations will stop when the lower bound average gain is below this threshold.
reg_covar : float, defaults to 1e6.
Nonnegative regularization added to the diagonal of covariance. Allows to assure that the covariance matrices are all positive.
max_iter : int, defaults to 100.
The number of EM iterations to perform.
n_init : int, defaults to 1.
The number of initializations to perform. The best results are kept.
init_params : {‘kmeans’, ‘random’}, defaults to ‘kmeans’.
The method used to initialize the weights, the means and the precisions. Must be one of:
'kmeans' : responsibilities are initialized using kmeans. 'random' : responsibilities are initialized randomly.
weights_init : arraylike, shape (n_components, ), optional
The userprovided initial weights, defaults to None. If it None, weights are initialized using the init_params method.
means_init : arraylike, shape (n_components, n_features), optional
The userprovided initial means, defaults to None, If it None, means are initialized using the init_params method.
precisions_init : arraylike, optional.
The userprovided initial precisions (inverse of the covariance matrices), defaults to None. If it None, precisions are initialized using the ‘init_params’ method. The shape depends on ‘covariance_type’:
(n_components,) if 'spherical', (n_features, n_features) if 'tied', (n_components, n_features) if 'diag', (n_components, n_features, n_features) if 'full'
random_state : int, RandomState instance or None, optional (default=None)
If int, random_state is the seed used by the random number generator; If RandomState instance, random_state is the random number generator; If None, the random number generator is the RandomState instance used by np.random.
warm_start : bool, default to False.
If ‘warm_start’ is True, the solution of the last fitting is used as initialization for the next call of fit(). This can speed up convergence when fit is called several time on similar problems.
verbose : int, default to 0.
Enable verbose output. If 1 then it prints the current initialization and each iteration step. If greater than 1 then it prints also the log probability and the time needed for each step.
verbose_interval : int, default to 10.
Number of iteration done before the next print.
Attributes: weights_ : arraylike, shape (n_components,)
The weights of each mixture components.
means_ : arraylike, shape (n_components, n_features)
The mean of each mixture component.
covariances_ : arraylike
The covariance of each mixture component. The shape depends on covariance_type:
(n_components,) if 'spherical', (n_features, n_features) if 'tied', (n_components, n_features) if 'diag', (n_components, n_features, n_features) if 'full'
precisions_ : arraylike
The precision matrices for each component in the mixture. A precision matrix is the inverse of a covariance matrix. A covariance matrix is symmetric positive definite so the mixture of Gaussian can be equivalently parameterized by the precision matrices. Storing the precision matrices instead of the covariance matrices makes it more efficient to compute the loglikelihood of new samples at test time. The shape depends on covariance_type:
(n_components,) if 'spherical', (n_features, n_features) if 'tied', (n_components, n_features) if 'diag', (n_components, n_features, n_features) if 'full'
precisions_cholesky_ : arraylike
The cholesky decomposition of the precision matrices of each mixture component. A precision matrix is the inverse of a covariance matrix. A covariance matrix is symmetric positive definite so the mixture of Gaussian can be equivalently parameterized by the precision matrices. Storing the precision matrices instead of the covariance matrices makes it more efficient to compute the loglikelihood of new samples at test time. The shape depends on covariance_type:
(n_components,) if 'spherical', (n_features, n_features) if 'tied', (n_components, n_features) if 'diag', (n_components, n_features, n_features) if 'full'
converged_ : bool
True when convergence was reached in fit(), False otherwise.
n_iter_ : int
Number of step used by the best fit of EM to reach the convergence.
lower_bound_ : float
Loglikelihood of the best fit of EM.

aic
(X)[source]¶ Akaike information criterion for the current model on the input X.
Parameters: X : array of shape (n_samples, n_dimensions)

bic
(X)[source]¶ Bayesian information criterion for the current model on the input X.
Parameters: X : array of shape (n_samples, n_dimensions)

fit
(X, y=None)[source]¶ Estimate model parameters with the EM algorithm.
The method fit the model n_init times and set the parameters with which the model has the largest likelihood or lower bound. Within each trial, the method iterates between Estep and Mstep for max_iter times until the change of likelihood or lower bound is less than tol, otherwise, a ConvergenceWarning is raised.
