MultinomialDistribution[n, {p1, p2, ..., pm}]
represents a multinomial distribution with n trials and probabilities .


  • The probability for a vector of non-negative integers , , ..., in a multinomial distribution is .
  • The number of trials n can be any positive integer, and can be any non-negative real numbers such that .
  • MultinomialDistribution can be used with such functions as Mean, CDF, and RandomVariate.
