Discovering mixtures of models includes: initiating learning algorithms, determining, data sets including a cluster of points in a first region of a domain and a set of points distributed near a first line extending across the domain; inferencing parameters from the cluster and the set of points; creating a description of the cluster of points in the first region of the domain and computing approximations of a first learned mixture model and a second learned mixture model; determining a first and second probability, generating a confidence rating that each point of the cluster of points in the first region of the domain corresponds to the first learned mixture model and generating a confidence rating that each point of the set of points distributed near the first line correspond to the second learned mixture model, thus causing determinations of behavior of a system described by the learned mixture models.
