It lies within the interval [a;b], a and b being finite real numbers. Let us further assume we dispose of a series of measurements X of known standard deviations. X is a complex function of k. What are Jeffreys prior and Bernardo's prior? Many thanks for your answer Last edited by lotharson; August 30th, 2015 at 02:04 PM.
