%X This paper proposes an observation-driven finite mixture model for clustering high-dimension data. A simple algorithm using static hidden variables statically clusters the data into separate model components. The model accommodates normal and skew-normal distributed mixtures with time-varying component means, covariance matrices and skewness coefficient. These parameters are estimated using the EM algorithm and updated with the Generalized Autoregressive Scale (GAS) approach. Our proposed model is preferably clustered using a skew-normal distribution rather than a normal distribution when dealing with real data that may be skewed and asymmetrical. Finally, our proposed model will be evaluated using a simulation study and the results will be discussed using a real data set.
