comment When is a minimum distance decoder also a maximum likelihood decoder?
I was afraid that the answer would be the one that you gave. Probably it is quite hard to say anything more general, and from the point of view of channel theory it might not shed any more light...

comment Integrate over the uniform distribution on the simplex
thanks, I see, $\beta(1,n-1)=(n-1)(1-x)^{n-2}$. And another probably trivial precision, what is the symmetry argument that allows to transform the integration on the simplex to $n$ times the marginal integral?

comment Integrate over the uniform distribution on the simplex
do you have any reference for your density derivation? i.e. $(n-1)(1-x)^{n-2}$, or is it trivial?
