PLMIX: Bayesian Analysis of Finite Mixtures of Plackett-Luce Models for Partial Rankings/Orderings

Fit finite mixtures of Plackett-Luce models for partial top rankings/orderings within the Bayesian framework. It provides MAP point estimates via EM algorithm and posterior MCMC simulations via Gibbs Sampling. It also fits MLE as a special case of the noninformative Bayesian analysis with vague priors.
