Accuracy of methods in inferring simulated mixture components and assigning mixture fractions to data points. (a) Root mean square error in inferred mixture components as a function of noise level for uniform mixtures of k = 3 to k = 7 mixture components. (b) Root mean square error in fractional assignments of components to data points as a function of noise level for uniform mixtures of k = 3 to k = 7 mixture components. (c) Root mean square error in inferred mixture components as a function of noise level for tree-embedded mixtures of k = 3 to k = 7 mixture components. (d) Root mean square error in fractional assignments of components to data points as a function of noise level for tree-embedded mixtures of k = 3 to k = 7 mixture components.
