The aim is to study the asymptotic behavior of estimators and tests
for the components of identifiable finite mixture models of
nonparametric densities with a known number of components.
Conditions for identifiability of the mixture components and
convergence of identifiable parameters are given.
The consistency and weak convergence of the identifiable parameters
and test statistics are presented for several models.
