Estimation of Order of Mixture Distributions

Methods for estimating the order of a mixture model. The approaches considered are based on the following papers (extensive list of references is available in the vignette): 1. Dacunha-Castelle, Didier, and Elisabeth Gassiat. The estimation of the order of a mixture model.
