Completely integrable gradient systems on the manifolds of Gaussian and multinomial distributions
Gradient systems on the manifolds of Gaussian and multinomial distributions are shown to be completely integrable Hamiltonian systems. The corresponding flows converge exponentially to equilibrium. A Lax representation of the gradient systems is found.
