`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:
