Title:
On nomenclature for, and the relative merits of, two formulations of skew distributions
Authors:
Azzalini, Adelchi; Browne, Ryan P.; Genton, Marc G. ( 0000-0001-6467-2998 ) ; McNicholas, Paul D.
Abstract:
We examine some skew distributions used extensively within the model-based clustering literature in recent years, paying special attention to claims that have been made about their relative efficacy. Theoretical arguments are provided as well as real data examples.
