### v — number of dimensions (variables). Scalar.

Desired number of variables.

Data Types: int16|int32|int64|single|double

### k — number of groups (components). Scalar.

Desired number of groups.

Data Types: int16|int32|int64|single|double

### pa — Constraints to apply and model specification. Structure.

Structure containing the following fields:

Value Description
pars

type of Gaussian Parsimonious Clustering Model. Character.

A 3 letter word in the set: 'VVE','EVE','VVV','EVV','VEE','EEE','VEV','EEV','VVI', 'EVI','VEI','EEI','VII','EII'.

The field pa.pars is compulsory. All the other fields are non necessary. If they are not present they are set to their default values.

exactrestriction

boolean. If pa.exactrestriction is true the covariance matrices have to be generated with the exact values of the restrictions specified in pa.cdet, pa.shw and pa.swb. In order to reach this purpose, this procedure ensures to generate shape matrices in which at least one ratio of the elements inside each component is greater or equal than that specified is pa.shw and at least one ratio among the ordered elements of each shape matrix is greater or equal tahn pa.shb. The successive application of routine restrSgimaGPCM guarrantes that the inequalites become equalities. The default value of pa.exaxtrestriction is false therefore covariance matrices are generated without implying any constraint. If pa.exactrestriction is true covariance matrices are generated with: 1) max ratio between determinants equal to pa.cdet (if pa.cdet is specififed);

2) at least a ratio between the elements of each shape matrix greater or equal than pa.shw (if pa.shw is specififed);

3) max ratio between the ordered elements of each shape matrices greater or equal than pa.shb).

cdet

scalar in the interval [1 Inf) which specifies the the restriction which has to be applied to the determinants.

This field is used just if pa.exactrestriction is true.

shw

scalar in the interval [1 Inf) which specifies the the restriction which has to be applied to the elements of the shape matrices inside each group. This field is used just if pa.exactrestriction is true.

shb

scalar in the interval [1 Inf) which specifies the the restriction which has to be applied to the ordered elements of the shape matrices across groups. This field is used just if pa.exactrestriction is true.
