Gaussian Mixture Reducer class:
Reduces the number of components in a Gaussian mixture to increase computational efficiency. See  for details. Achieved in two ways: pruning and merging. Pruning is the act of removing low weight components from the mixture that fall below a pruning threshold. Merging is the act of combining similar components in the mixture that fall with a distance threshold into a single component.
