# ParameterMixtureDistribution

ParameterMixtureDistribution[dist[], wdist]
represents a parameter mixture distribution where the parameter is distributed according to the weight distribution wdist.

ParameterMixtureDistribution[dist[1, 2, ...], {1wdist1, 2wdist2, ...}]
represents a parameter mixture distribution where the parameter has weight distribution , has weight distribution , etc.

## DetailsDetails

• The probability density for value is given by Expectation[PDF[dist[], x], wdist].
• The domain of the weight distribution wdist needs to be a subset or equal to the parameter domain expected for .
• Parameters can be discrete or continuous.
• ParameterMixtureDistribution can be used with such functions as Mean, CDF, and RandomVariate, etc.

Specify a parameter mixture distribution:

 Out[1]=
 Out[2]=

Parameter mixture distributions work like any other distributions:

 Out[1]=
 Out[2]=
 Out[3]=
 Out[4]=

Find a parameter mixture of a multivariate distribution:
