A truncated bivariate inverted Dirichlet distribution
AbstractA truncated version of the bivariate inverted dirichlet distribution is introduced. Unlike the inverted dirichlet distribution, this possesses finite moments of all orders and could therefore be a better model for certain practical situations. One such situation is discussed. The moments, maximum likelihood estimators and the Fisher information matrix for the truncated distribution are derived.
