Fits mixed membership models with discrete multivariate data (with or without repeated measures) following the general framework of Erosheva et al (2004). This package uses a Variational EM approach by approximating the posterior distribution of latent memberships and selecting hyperparameters through a pseudo-MLE procedure. Currently supported data types are Bernoulli, multinomial and rank (Plackett-Luce). The extended GoM model with fixed stayers from Erosheva et al (2007) is now also supported. See Airoldi et al (2014) for other examples of mixed membership models.
