Dirichlet random values simulation

Description

Dirichlet random values simulation.

Usage

rdiri(n, a)

Arguments

n

The sample size, a numerical value.

a

A numerical vector with the parameter values.

Details

The algorithm is straightforward, for each vector, independent gamma values are generated and then divided by their total sum.

Value

A matrix with the simulated data.
