Abstract:

Structural distributions are discussed for a class of invariant statistical models. These distributions are shown to be equal to the Bayes posterior distribution obtained from a certain uniform prior related to the right invariant measure on the parameter space. As usual, the structural distributions have a stronger interpretation than the Bayesian ones. A consistency criterion of Sprotts type is proved for these distributions. Author
