From GEM back to Dirichlet via Hoppe's Urn
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 01 June 1997
In generalisation of the beta law obtained under the GEM/Poisson–Dirichlet distribution in Hirth  we undertake here an analogous construction which results in the Dirichlet law. Our proof makes use of Hoppe's Pólya-like urn model in population genetics.
