- What does a “closed-form solution” mean? 5 answers
Can someone explain this to me: "the integral of [the Bayes estimator of] h(θ) does not have a closed form integral under the possibly closed form posterior distribution." It's from here: https://www2.isye.gatech.edu/~brani/isyebayes/bank/handout9.pdf.
What is a closed-form integral?
How do I know whether the integral of a function has a closed-form integral or not?
