Example text

I=1 Suppose the noninformative prior density p(σ 2 ) ∝ 1/σ 2 is assigned to the variance. This is the standard vague prior placed on a variance – it is equivalent to assuming that the logarithm of the variance is uniformly distributed on the real line. Then the posterior density of σ 2 is given, up to a proportionality constant, by g(σ 2 |data) ∝ (σ 2 )−n/2−1 exp{−v/(2σ 2 )}, where v = i=1 d2i . If we define the precision parameter P = 1/σ 2 , then it can be shown that P is distributed as U/v, where U has a chi-squared distribution with n degrees of freedom.

Suppose we use a discrete prior where {pi } represent the possible values of the proportion with respective probabilities {g(pi )}. , n. y Then the predictive probability of y˜ successes in a future sample of size m is given by y |m, pi )g(pi ). 6 p Fig. 7. A histogram of simulated draws from the posterior distribution of p with the use of a histogram prior. The function pdiscp in the LearnBayes package can be used to compute the predictive probabilities when p is given a discrete distribution.

Initial beliefs. 3. 5. A convenient family of densities for a proportion is the beta with kernel proportional to g(p) ∝ pa−1 (1 − p)b−1 , 0 < p < 1, where the hyperparameters a and b are chosen to reflect the user’s prior beliefs about p. The mean of a beta prior is m = a/(a + b) and the variance of the prior is v = m(1−m)/(a+b+1), but it is difficult in practice for a user to assess values of m and v to obtain values of the beta parameters a and b. It is easier to obtain a and b indirectly through statements about the percentiles of the distribution.
