P Eichelsbacher, AJ Ganesh

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review


Let (X-k)(kis an element ofN) be a sequence of i.i.d. random variables taking values in a set Omega, and consider the problem of estimating the law of X-1 in a Bayesian framework. We prove, under mild conditions on the prior, that the sequence of posterior distributions satisfies a moderate deviation principle.
