## Classes demonstrated#

template<typename TSample>
class ExpectationMaximizationMixtureModelEstimator : public itk::Object

This class generates the parameter estimates for a mixture model using expectation maximization strategy.

The first template argument is the type of the target sample data. This estimator expects one or more mixture model component objects of the classes derived from the MixtureModelComponentBase. The actual component (or module) parameters are updated by each component. Users can think this class as a strategy or a integration point for the EM procedure. The initial proportion (SetInitialProportions), the input sample (SetSample), the mixture model components (AddComponent), and the maximum iteration (SetMaximumIteration) are required. The EM procedure terminates when the current iteration reaches the maximum iteration or the model parameters converge.

Recent API changes: The static const macro to get the length of a measurement vector, `MeasurementVectorSize` has been removed to allow the length of a measurement vector to be specified at run time. It is now obtained at run time from the sample set as input. Please use the function GetMeasurementVectorSize() to get the length.
