A measure of dependence between two compositions

Bergman, Jakob LU orcid and Holmquist, Björn LU orcid (2009)
Abstract
A composition is a vector of positive components summing to a constant.

We consider the problem of describing the correlation between two compo-

sitions. Using a bicompositional Dirichlet distribution, we calculate a joint

correlation coefficient, based on the concept of information gain, between two

compositions. Numerical values of the joint correlation coefficient are calcu-

lated for compositions of two and three components.
