Tidy summarizes information about the components of a model. A model component might be a single term in a regression, a single hypothesis, a cluster, or a class. Exactly what tidy considers to be a model component varies cross models but is usually self-evident. If a model has several distinct types of components, you will need to specify which components to return.

# S3 method for Mclust
tidy(x, ...)



An Mclust object return from mclust::Mclust().


Additional arguments. Not used. Needed to match generic signature only. Cautionary note: Misspelled arguments will be absorbed in ..., where they will be ignored. If the misspelled argument has a default value, the default value will be used. For example, if you pass conf.lvel = 0.9, all computation will proceed using conf.level = 0.95. Additionally, if you pass newdata = my_tibble to an augment() method that does not accept a newdata argument, it will use the default value for the data argument.

A tibble::tibble() with columns:


The mixing proportion of each component


Number of points assigned to cluster.


The mean for each component. In case of 2+ dimensional models, a column with the mean is added for each dimension. NA for noise component


In case of one-dimensional and spherical models, the variance for each component, omitted otherwise. NA for noise component


Cluster id as a factor.
