General dependence structures for some models based on exponential families with quadratic variance functions
We describe a procedure to introduce general dependence structures on a set of random variables. These include order-q moving average-type structures, as well as seasonal, periodic, spatial andExpand
Conjugate Priors and Posterior Inference for the Matrix Langevin Distribution on the Stiefel Manifold
Directional data emerges in a wide array of applications, ranging from atmospheric sciences to medical imaging. Modeling such data, however, poses unique challenges by virtue of their beingExpand

A Bayesian Mixture Model for Clustering on the Stiefel Manifold
Analysis of a Bayesian mixture model for the Matrix Langevin distribution on the Stiefel manifold is presented. The model exploits a particular parametrization of the Matrix Langevin distribution,Expand
Bayesian Hierarchical Models With Conjugate Full-Conditional Distributions for Dependent Data From the Natural Exponential Family
Abstract We introduce a Bayesian approach for analyzing (possibly) high-dimensional dependent data that are distributed according to a member from the natural exponential family of distributions.Expand
The Scaled Beta2 Distribution as a Robust Prior for Scales
We put forward the Scaled Beta2 (SBeta2) as a flexible and tractable family for modeling scales in both hierarchical and non-hierarchical settings. Various sensible alternatives to the overuse ofExpand

Bayesian approach to cubic natural exponential families
In this paper, we extend to the Letac–Mora class of real cubic natural exponential families the properties and characterization results related to the Bayesian theory established for the Morris classExpand
A conjugate prior for discrete hierarchical log-linear models
In the Bayesian analysis of contingency table data, the selection of a prior distribution for either the log-linear parameters or the cell probabilities parameter is a major challenge. Though theExpand
A Monte Carlo method to compute the marginal likelihood in non decomposable graphical Gaussian models
A centered Gaussian model Markov with respect to an undirected graph G is characterized by the parameter set of its precision matrices which is the cone M+(G) of positive definite matrices withExpand

Credible Means are exact Bayesian for Exponential Families
The credibility formula used in casualty insurance experience rating is known to be exact for certain prior-likelihood distributions, and is the minimum least-squares unbiased estimator for allExpand
Stein's Estimation Rule and Its Competitors- An Empirical Bayes Approach
Abstract Stein's estimator for k normal means is known to dominate the MLE if k ≥ 3. In this article we ask if Stein's estimator is any good in its own right. Our answer is yes: the positive partExpand

Abstract This note shows that under a certain class of prior distributions of the vector, X = (X 1, …, XN ), of the unknown finite population values, the posterior mean and variance of the populationExpand
