Abstract: 

In this work we develop and describe a new class of nonparametric prior distributions on the subspace of the random multivariate distributions. Our methodology is based on a variant of Khinchin's representation theorem for unimodal distributions extended to multimodal multivariate cases. Results using our approach in a bivariate setting with a random draw from a Dirichlet process are presented.
