The main result of my thesis is best explained by this poster.

The work primarily consists of 5 papers, linked below.

- Bayesian Fitting of Dirichlet Type I and II Distributions
- Multiple Discrimination Between Dirichlet Populations
- Classification of Multiple Dirichlet Observations under a Multinomial Model
- A Multivariate Gamma Distribution Applied To Composition Data Analysis
- A method for Bayesian regression modelling of composition data

#### Code related to thesis

Firstly we have a post with generally useful code for the Dirichlet distribution.

Then we have a document with commented code explaining the example on Netball data in the 5th paper above (Chapter 6 of the thesis), plus its accompanying dataset.

#### LateX

Those interested in writing a thesis in LateX might like to have a look at my source for the preamble and introduction.

The bibliograph file might be useful to somebody doing research in this field.
