Finite mixture distributions have been postulated in diverse applications. Chapter 2 of the book gives an indication of the scope of these applications. The interest may be in learning about the parameters of the component distributions and the proportions in which they are mixed, or finite mixtures may be considered as alternatives to standard distrech.
