<p><b>Abstract</b>—Gradient-quadratic and fixed-point iteration algorithms and appropriate values for their control parameters are derived for finding all modes of a Gaussian mixture, a problem with applications in clustering and regression. The significance of the modes found is quantified locally by Hessian-based error bars and globally by the entropy as sparseness measure.</p>
