Some representations of the multivariate Bernoulli and binomial distributions


  • Teugels, Jozef L


Multivariate but vectorized versions for Bernoulli and binomial distributions are established using the concept of Kronecker product from matrix calculus. The multivariate Bernoulli distribution entails a parameterized model, that provides an alternative to the traditional log-linear model for binary variables.
