We employ the multivariate Stieltjes transform and Watson [15] celebrated formula involving the multivariate B-spline functions for distributional identification of multivariate random weights averages. We show that certain classes of Dirichlet and random scale stable random vectors are random weightes averages.</p>}, number={4}, journal={REVSTAT-Statistical Journal}, author={Soltani , A.R. and Roozegar , Rasool}, year={2020}, month={Oct.}, pages={453–460} }
