The Logistic-Normal distribution  is a distribution over a simplex which forms a richer class of distributions than Dirichlets and better captures intercomponent correlations
The Logistic-Normal distribution  is a distribution over a simplex which forms a richer class of distributions than Dirichlets and better captures intercomponent correlations. We present the method for fitting a Hierarchical Logistic-Normal (HLN) distribution given by Hoff .
