# Bayesian inference in high-dimensional linear models using an empirical correlation-adaptive prior

@article{Liu2018BayesianII, title={Bayesian inference in high-dimensional linear models using an empirical correlation-adaptive prior}, author={Chang Liu and Yue Yang and Howard D. Bondell and Ryan Martin}, journal={Statistica Sinica}, year={2018} }

In the context of a high-dimensional linear regression model, we propose the use of an empirical correlation-adaptive prior that makes use of information in the observed predictor variable matrix to adaptively address high collinearity, determining if parameters associated with correlated predictors should be shrunk together or kept apart. Under suitable conditions, we prove that this empirical Bayes posterior concentrates around the true sparse parameter at the optimal rate asymptotically. A…
