Bayesian Theory and Applications

A. Philip Dawid

Oxford University Press

Bruno de Finetti's concept of exchangeability and its associated mathematics form one of the cornerstones of subjectivist Bayesian inference, providing Bayesians with a good reason to take seriously the frequentist's model of independent observations from a common but unknown distribution. There are many ways of understanding and generalizing de Finetti's theorem. This chapter presents a brief survey of some of these generalizations and their applications.
