“In my opinion, the editors have done an excellent job when selecting the contents of the handbook and putting the different chapters together. For instance, this can be appreciated by the fact that, despite the large number of authors and contributions, all chapters have kept the same notation. Furthermore, in addition to a sound description of the underlying theory and methods, several chapters include information about how to fit the presented models using the R programming language. However, I missed pointers to repositories to download the code and datasets for some of the examples used in the book. To sum up, this is an excellent reference book on mixture models.” Virgilio Gómez-Rubio, JRSS A, 2021

Merging bibtex files

Posted in Books, Linux, Statistics with tags , , , on October 6, 2009 by xi'an

Even though I strive to work with a single bibtex file for all my papers and books, using a symbolic link to the mother biblio.bib file in each paper directory, it happens now and then that local biblio.bib files get a life of their own! So this morning I cleaned up my computer by replacing all mutant biblio.bib files by the mother file, but I had first to make sure all local references had been included in this single file. There are certainly many ways to do so but I found using kbibtex, a bibtex editor for KDE, fairly painless and efficient.
