Bayesian Statistics and Linear Regression

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents the basic concepts and tools that are useful for modelling and for Bayesian inference. It defines density kernels useful for simplifying notation and computations and explains the likelihood principle and its implications for the Bayesian treatment of nuisance parameters. It discusses the notion of natural conjugate inference, which is an important tool of Bayesian analysis in the case of the exponential family, and provides details on the natural conjugate framework.

Keywords: Bayesian inference; density kernels; likelihood principle; nuisance parameters; conjugate inference; exponential family

Chapter.  9831 words.  Illustrated.
