A model selection algorithm is developed for finding the best model among a set of mixture of normal densities fitted to heterogeneous multivariate data. Model selection algorithm proposed first finds total number of mixture of normal densities then selects possible number of mixture of normal densities and finally searches the best model among them in mixture model clustering of heterogeneous multivariate data. Log-likelihood function, Akaike's information criteria and Bayesian information criteria values are computed and graphically ploted for each mixture of normal densities. The best model is chosen according to the values of these information criterions.
