# Lukacs's proportion-sum independence theorem Lukacs's proportion-sum independence theorem In statistics, Lukacs's proportion-sum independence theorem is a result that is used when studying proportions, in particular the Dirichlet distribution. It is named after Eugene Lukacs. The theorem If Y1 and Y2 are non-degenerate, independent random variables, then the random variables {displaystyle W=Y_{1}+Y_{2}{texto{ e }}P={fratura {Y_{1}}{Y_{1}+Y_{2}}}} are independently distributed if and only if both Y1 and Y2 have gamma distributions with the same scale parameter.

Corollary Suppose Y i, i = 1, ..., k be non-degenerate, independent, positive random variables. Then each of k − 1 variáveis ​​aleatórias {estilo de exibição P_{eu}={fratura {Y_{eu}}{soma _{i=1}^{k}Y_{eu}}}} is independent of {displaystyle W=sum _{i=1}^{k}Y_{eu}} if and only if all the Y i have gamma distributions with the same scale parameter.
