`NPflow`

## Overview

`NPflow`

is a package for performing **Bayesian estimation of Dirichlet process mixtures of multivariate skew ***t*-distributions. It is especially oriented towards flow-cytometry data preprocessing applications, but can be useful for numerous other applications.

The main function of the package is `DPMpost()`

.

The method implemented in this package is detailed in the following article:

## Installation

The easiest way to get `NPflow`

is to install it from CRAN:

`install.packages("NPflow")`

Or to get the development version from GitHub:
