For this week’s journal club, I would like to re-visit the by now canonical Dirichlet Process Gaussian mixture. The paper can e.g. be found at

http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.111.993&rep=rep1&type=pdf

or, tellingly, at http://www.inference.phy.cam.ac.uk/is/donut/infinite/InfiniteGaussianMixtureModel.ps

Most of us have seen this model before, but many (including myself) have never actually implemented it. I will try to prepare some code, and hope that we will be able to do some actual computing during the session, to understand some of the pitfalls of MCMC inference in this otherwise conceptually very clean model.
