The normal method of a number of trying out or simultaneous inference used to be to take a small variety of correlated or uncorrelated checks and estimate a family-wise style I blunders fee that minimizes the the chance of only one kind I blunders out of the total set whan the entire null hypotheses carry. Bounds like Bonferroni or Sidak have been occasionally used to as procedure for constraining the typeI blunders as they represented higher bounds.

It has been recognized that Bayes factor can be sensitive to the prior, which is related to what is known as Lindley’s paradox (see Shafer (1982)). 1 Bayes factors in the binomial example with n = 100, N = 63, and priors Beta(α, 1 − α) for 0 ≤ α ≤ 1. 1 for a class of Beta priors Beta(α, 1 − α) for 0 ≤ α ≤ 1. The Bayes factor is inﬁnity at the two extreme priors corresponding to α = 0 and α = 1. It can be shown that this class of priors is necessary in the context of imprecise Bayes for producing inferential results that have desired frequency properties.

14 Let πi (i = 1, 2) be the probability measure for N(µi , 1). Find the total variation distance between π1 and π2 . Hint: Let λ = π2 − π1 and let φ(x − µi ) be the density of πi for i = 1 and 2. Then supA λ(A) = inf φ(x−µ2 )−φ(x−µ1 ) > 0 [φ(x − µ2 ) − φ(x − µ1 )] dx. Chapter 2 The Gibbs Sampler Direct sampling techniques discussed in Chapter 1 for generating multivariate variables are often practically infeasible for Bayesian inference, except for simple models. For example, for the Acceptance-Rejection or its variants such as the ratio-of-uniforms method, the acceptance rate often becomes eﬀectively zero in high dimensional problems.

Consider the hypothesis H0 : θ = 0 versus the alternative hypothesis Ha : θ = 0. Apply the Bayes approach using Bayes factors. 2 Consider inference about the binomial proportion θ in Binomial(n, θ) from an observed count X. (a) Show that the Jeﬀreys prior for the binomial proportion θ is the Beta distribution Beta 12 , 12 . (b) Derive the posterior π(θ|X). 9999. 3 Suppose that the sample density function of a single observation X ∈ R has the density of the form f(x−θ), where θ ∈ R is unknown parameter to be estimated.
