On entropies of occupancy distributions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceedingpeer-review


Occupancy models for equal or unequal objects distributed into equal or unequal cells can be represented by random partitions of integers or sets and also by randomly colored and labeled graphs. Applications of occupancy models to statistical disclosure control and to cluster inference in random graphs motivate an interest in entropies of occupancy distributions. We determine and compare entropies of various distributions encountere in some classical and recent occupancy models.
