Abstract:

Exact and approximate Bayesian solutions for inference about variance components and multivariate inadmissibility are obtained, using a class of prior distributions which allows realistic forms of prior knowledge to be incorporated. Results are based upon new mathematical representations for the Appell and ordinary hypergeometric functions. Author
