This sentence is relative to my previous question. It is very important to understand it. However, I feel that the new sentence may do not mean to introduce a new idea.
Our modelling strategy is related to the work of Kim et al. (2013) and their idea of using mixtures of D-vines but tackles the problem of constructing a vine model from a different perspective. While their study is concerned with the use of mixtures of D-vines (yielding multivariate models of even higher flexibility), we construct C- and D-vines with mixture pair-copulas to minimize the possibility of misspecifying a vine model."
My question is: does use to minimize means that the new idea is aim to do something that may be not introduced in the last method?
In other words,
The authors mentioned that their work is related to the work of Kim. However, their model tackles the problem in a different way. And the aim of their idea is to reduce the mistake. My question is:
Does use ** we construct C- and D-vines with a mixture
