Abstract : The multivariate 'inverted' beta distribution obtained by the authors is a generalization of the wellknown univariate 'inverted' beta distribution. Some properties of the distribution are discussed. Its connection with the multivariate student-t distribution is shown. Finally, an application which involves a preposterior analysis of the scale parameter of a normal process is given.
