Sample from a Dirichlet distribution

Sample finite-dimensional vectors to use as latent position vectors in random dot product graphs

Usage
sample_dirichlet(n, alpha)
Arguments
n

Integer scalar, the sample size.

alpha

Numeric vector, the vector of \(\alpha\) parameter for the Dirichlet distribution.

Details

sample_dirichlet generates samples from the Dirichlet distribution with given \(\alpha\) parameter. The sample is drawn from length(alpha)-1-simplex.

Value

A dim (length of the alpha vector for sample_dirichlet) times n matrix, whose columns are the sample vectors.
