By Gudmund R. Iversen

Empirical researchers, for whom Iversen's quantity presents an advent, have in most cases lacked a grounding within the technique of Bayesian inference. for this reason, purposes are few. After outlining the restrictions of classical statistical inference, the writer proceeds via an easy instance to provide an explanation for Bayes' theorem and the way it can triumph over those obstacles. usual Bayesian functions are proven, including the strengths and weaknesses of the Bayesian process. This monograph hence serves as a spouse quantity for Henkel's checks of importance (QASS vol 4).
