tf.compat.v1.distributions.Multinomial

Multinomial distribution.

Inherits From: Distribution

This Multinomial distribution is parameterized by probs, a (batch of) length-K prob (probability) vectors (K > 1) such that tf.reduce_sum(probs, -1) = 1, and a total_count number of trials, i.e., the number of trials per draw from the Multinomial. It is defined over a (batch of) length-K vector counts such that tf.reduce_sum(counts, -1) = total_count. The Multinomial is identically the Binomial distribution when K = 2.

Mathematical Details

The Multinomial is a distribution over K-class counts, i.e., a length-K vector of non-negative integer counts = n = [n_0, ..., n_{K-1}].

The probability mass function (pmf) is,
