# Which distributions on [0,1] other than the beta distribution form nice compounds with the binomial distribution?

For which distributions x, other than beta, is the x-binomial distribution nice? The beta and binomial distributions are famously conjugate but I am curious if other non-conjugate distributions will give comparably simple compound pmfs. By nice I mean that the pmf is nice to compute without resorting to numerical integration; I'm not referring to the easyness of sampling from the compound distribution.

Nice question. I was going to suggest a Jeffreys prior, but it turns out that's just a special case of the beta distribution for binomial models. I'll keep thinking and see if I can come up with any others. I have some vague sense that there are transformations of Gaussians that work, but Google isn't helping me pin that down. –  David J.

If you just want to be able to write down the probability mass function, you have a lot of flexibility, basically because you can repeatedly use integration by parts. As long as you can integrate the distribution of $X$ repeatedly to get closed form expressions, you get at worst a double sum of closed form expressions for the pmf of the compound distribution. I think you often get single sums, so maybe there is an even simpler way of expressing these.
For example, let $\text{pdf}_X(x) = -\log x$ on $[0,1]$.
$$\int_0^1 {N\choose k}x^k (1-x)^{N-k} (-\log x) ~dx \\\ = \frac{1}{N+1}\sum_{i=k}^{N} \frac1{i+1}.$$
