An example of a video is They always ignore the contstants when calculating the posterior distribution, but never explain why. For example when calculating postererior distribution for normal, the constant $\displaystyle \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi\sigma^2}}$ is always ignored and removed. Please can someone explain why?
