Finite mixture distribution, Advanced Statistics

The probability distribution which is a linear function of the number of component probability distributions. This type of distributions is used to model the populations thought to contain the relatively distinct groups of observations. An early instance of the application of this type of distribution was that of Pearson in the year1894 who applied the following mixture of the two normal distributions to the measurements made on a particular type of crab:
