Hi Ranjan:

Try this:


It appears there are three packages that might be relevant:
HistDAWass, transport and TDA.

I am particularly interested in mixture densities (in functional form). I know that we have the earthmovers distance in R via the emdist package but it appears to me upon a quick look that this can not handle densities in functional form. So, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on code for this problem.
