A New Distribution on the Simplex with Auto-Encoding Applications

NeurIPS 2019 Andrew StirnTony JebaraDavid A Knowles

We construct a new distribution for the simplex using the Kumaraswamy distribution and an ordered stick-breaking process. We explore and develop the theoretical properties of this new distribution and prove that it exhibits symmetry under the same conditions as the well-known Dirichlet... (read more)
