Limitations of Bayesian Evidence Applied to Cosmology

Abstract

There has been increasing interest in applying Bayesian techniques for model selection (such as Bayesian Evidence) to problems in cosmology. A typical example is in assessing whether observational data favour a cosmological constant over evolving dark energy. In this paper, the example of dark energy is used to illustrate limitations in the application of… (More)
