# multinomial¶

ivy.multinomial(probs, num_samples, f=None)[source]

Draws samples from a multinomial distribution. Specifcally, returns a tensor where each row contains num_samples indices sampled from the multinomial probability distribution located in the corresponding row of tensor input.

Parameters
• probs (array) – The unnormalized probabilities for all classes [batch_shape, num_classes]

• num_samples (int) – Number of independent samples to draw for each row slice

• f (ml_framework, optional) – Machine learning framework. Inferred from inputs if None.

Returns

Drawn samples from the multinomial distribution.
