Introduction to Bayesian Computation

  • Jim Albert

In the previous two chapters, two types of strategies were used in the summarization of posterior distributions. If the sampling density has a familiar functional form, such as a member of an exponential family, and a conjugate prior is chosen for the parameter, then the posterior distribution often is expressible in terms of familiar probability distributions.
