ⓘ Neutral vector
In statistics, and specifically in the study of the Dirichlet distribution, a neutral vector of random variables is one that exhibits a particular type of statistical independence amongst its elements. In particular, when elements of the random vector must add up to certain sum, then an element in the vector is neutral with respect to the others if the distribution of the vector created by expressing the remaining elements as proportions of their total is independent of the element that was omitted.
1. Definition
A single element X i {\displaystyle X_{i}} of a random vector X 1, X 2, …, X k {\displaystyle X_{1},X_{2},\ldots,X_{k}} is neutral if the relative proportions of all the other elements are independent of X i {\displaystyle X_{i}}.
Formally, consider the vector of random variables
X = X 1, …, X k {\displaystyle X=X_{1},\ldots,X_{k}}where
∑ i = 1 k X i = 1. {\displaystyle \sum _{i=1}^{k}X_{i}=1.}The values X i {\displaystyle X_{i}} are interpreted as lengths whose sum is unity. In a variety of contexts, it is often desirable to eliminate a proportion, say X 1 {\displaystyle X_{1}}, and consider the distribution of the remaining intervals within the remaining length. The first element of X {\displaystyle X}, viz X 1 {\displaystyle X_{1}} is defined as neutral if X 1 {\displaystyle X_{1}} is statistically independent of the vector
X 1 ∗ =. {\displaystyle X_{1}^{*}=\left{\frac {X_{2}}{1X_{1}}},{\frac {X_{3}}{1X_{1}}},\ldots,{\frac {X_{k}}{1X_{1}}}\right.}Variable X 2 {\displaystyle X_{2}} is neutral if X 2 / 1 − X 1 {\displaystyle X_{2}/1X_{1}} is independent of the remaining interval: that is, X 2 / 1 − X 1 {\displaystyle X_{2}/1X_{1}} being independent of
X 1, 2 ∗ =. {\displaystyle X_{1.2}^{*}=\left{\frac {X_{3}}{1X_{1}X_{2}}},{\frac {X_{4}}{1X_{1}X_{2}}},\ldots,{\frac {X_{k}}{1X_{1}X_{2}}}\right.}Thus X 2 {\displaystyle X_{2}}, viewed as the first element of Y = {\displaystyle Y=X_{2},X_{3},\ldots,X_{k}}, is neutral.
In general, variable X j {\displaystyle X_{j}} is neutral if X 1, … X j − 1 {\displaystyle X_{1},\ldots X_{j1}} is independent of
X 1, …, j ∗ = X j + 1 − X 1 − ⋯ − X j, …, X k 1 − X 1 − ⋯ − X j. {\displaystyle X_{1,\ldots,j}^{*}=\left{\frac {X_{j+1}}{1X_{1}\cdots X_{j}}},\ldots,{\frac {X_{k}}{1X_{1}\cdots X_{j}}}\right.}1.1. Definition Complete neutrality
A vector for which each element is neutral is completely neutral.
If X = X 1, …, X K ∼ Dir α {\displaystyle X=X_{1},\ldots,X_{K}\sim \operatorname {Dir} \alpha} is drawn from a Dirichlet distribution, then X {\displaystyle X} is completely neutral. In 1980, James and Mosimann showed that the Dirichlet distribution is characterised by neutrality.

 Weak neutral current interactions are one of the ways in which subatomic particles can interact by means of the weak force. These interactions are mediated
 if they provide a propulsive force in any vector either planned or inadvertent. Articles describing neutral buoyancy simulation generally point out that

 Similarly, the Vector Meson Dominance model has outperformed perturbative QCD in making predictions of transitional form factors of the neutral pion meson
 and muon neutrinos, while neutral pions generally decay into gamma rays. The exchange of virtual pions, along with vector rho and omega mesons, provides
