tfp.edward2.Multinomial(
    *args,
    **kwargs
)

Defined in python/edward2/interceptor.py.

See Multinomial for more details.

Returns:

RandomVariable.

Original Docstring for Distribution

Initialize a batch of Multinomial distributions.

Args:

  • total_count: Non-negative floating point tensor with shape broadcastable to [N1,..., Nm] with m >= 0. Defines this as a batch of N1 x ... x Nm different Multinomial distributions. Its components should be equal to integer values.
  • logits: Floating point tensor representing unnormalized log-probabilities of a positive event with shape broadcastable to [N1,..., Nm, K] m >= 0, and the same dtype as total_count. Defines this as a batch of N1 x ... x Nm different K class Multinomial distributions. Only one of logits or probs should be passed in.
  • probs: Positive floating point tensor with shape broadcastable to [N1,..., Nm, K] m >= 0 and same dtype as total_count. Defines this as a batch of N1 x ... x Nm different K class Multinomial distributions. probs's components in the last portion of its shape should sum to 1. Only one of logits or probs should be passed in.
  • validate_args: Python bool, default False. When True distribution parameters are checked for validity despite possibly degrading runtime performance. When False invalid inputs may silently render incorrect outputs.
  • allow_nan_stats: Python bool, default True. When True, statistics (e.g., mean, mode, variance) use the value "NaN" to indicate the result is undefined. When False, an exception is raised if one or more of the statistic's batch members are undefined.
  • name: Python str name prefixed to Ops created by this class.
