Logistic Normal Distribution

Logistic-normal distributions:

The logistic transformation applied to a d-dimensional normal distribution produces a distribution over the d-dimensional simplex which can sensibly be termed a logistic-normal distribution.

Following is a diagram from Brendam O’Connor.

APPENDIX:

For example, when you throwing an uniformity distributed coin.

Probability:

The probability of getting a head is p(x)= (Chances for) / (Total chances) .

Odds:

The odds is given as:  (Chances for) : (Chances against) . where (total chances) = (Chances for)  + (Chances against)
