There is an error in computer exercise 7.1 on page 164 of the book. The correct formulation of the problem is:
... Plot the distributions of the observed mixtures. ...
Also the datasets of the second project work are now available. I am very sorry for the delay in publishing them.
The assignments of the second project work are now available.
The assignments of the first project work are now available.
The list of exercise problems is now complete, i.e. no more problems will be given. More information on the computer exercises will appear later.
