For nonparametric Bayesian inference we use a prior which supports piecewise linear quantile functions, based on the need to work with a finite set of partitions, .

Hjort , Walker : Quantile pyramids for Bayesian nonparametrics

There is a marvelous textbook by Aliprantis and Border, which I believe every researcher with a serious interest in the theory of Bayesian nonparametric models should keep on their shelf. Scandinavian Journal of Statistics, Random nonparsmetrics Distributions on random functions can be used as prior distributions in regression and related problems.


For a wider range of material Kingman’s book has only pagesI have found the two volumes by Daley and Vere-Jones quite useful. Since the parameter space of a nonparametric model is infinite-dimensional, the prior and posterior distributions are probabilities on infinite-dimensional spaces, and hence stochastic nonpzrametrics. The prototypical prior on smooth random functions is the Gaussian process.

Nonparametric Bayes Tutorial

Tutorial chapters by Ghosal, Lijoi and Prunster, Teh and Jordan, and Dunson advance from theory, to basic models and hjorf modeling, to applications and implementation, particularly in computer science and biostatistics.

Dirichlet process, related priors and posterior asymptotics. Surveys Yee Whye Teh and I have written a short introductory article: Data Analysis and Graphics Using R: The generalization to arbitrary random variables, as well as the interpretation of the set of exchangeable measures as a convex polytope, is due to: Computational issues arising in Bayesian nonparametric hierarchical models Jim Griffin and Chris Holmes; 7.

Machine Learning Summer School, Any random discrete probability measure can in principle be used to replace the Dirichlet process in mixture models or one of its other applications infinite HMMs etc.

Tutorials on Bayesian Nonparametrics

This is one of the topics on which “the” book to read has been written; Kingman’s book on the Poisson process is certainly one hjot the best expository texts in probability. Other books in this series. Size-biased sampling of Poisson point processes and excursions.


An excellent introduction to Gaussian process models and many references can be found in the monograph by Rasmussen and Williams.

The term “hierarchical modeling” often refers to hjrot idea that the prior can itself be split up into further hierarchy layers. These are covered in every textbook on probability theory. Technically speaking, this is due to the fact that infinite-dimensional models can be undominated.

This coherent text gives ready access both to underlying principles and to state-of-the-art practice. The focus is on concepts; it is not a literature survey.
