Bayes Factors Based on Test Statistics Under Order Restrictions
The subject of statistical inference under order restrictions has been studied extensively since Bartholomew’s likelihood-ratio test for means under restricted alternatives . Order restrictions explicitly introduce scientific knowledge into the mathematical formulation of the problem, which can improve inference.
