##### Zero sum multinomial distribution as derived by McKane

The Zero sum multinomial distribution of species abundances as derived by McKane 2004.

Keywords
math
##### Usage
zsm(J, P, m)
##### Arguments
J
Size of local community
P
Abundance in metacommunity
m
Probability of immigration
##### Value

• Returns a vector of size J showing the probability of the stationary abundance being $1,\ldots,J$.

##### Note

The function uses lgamma() to avoid numerical overflow
