Earthquakes in Sannio Matese, a quite large Italian area, are divided into three geographical areas and interoccurrence times of major earthquakes, their magnitudes and number of minor earthquakes are analysed from a Bayesian point of view and then compared, discovering that diierent behaviours characterise the areas. Similar results are obtained by considering either a reasonable proper prior measure on the parameters of interest or a noninformative one.

We consider the case of a bivariate Dirichlet process model in which the parameter is known only through its marginal distributions. A Fréchet class on the parameter is therefore entertained and,… Expand

In robust bayesian analysis, ranges of quantities of interest (e. g. posterior means) are usually considered when the prior probability measure varies in a class Γ. Such quantities describe the… Expand

This chapter discusses Bayesian Assessment of Assumptions, which investigates the effect of non-Normality on Inferences about a Population Mean with Generalizations in the context of a Bayesian inference model.Expand
