Prior Information and Subjective Probability
As mentioned in Chapter 1, an important element of many decision problems is the prior information concerning θ. It was stated that a convenient way to quantify such information is in terms of a probability distribution on Θ. In this chapter, methods and problems involved in the construction of such probability distributions will be discussed.
