### What is the right Haar prior for the Weibull distribution?

From Wikipedia, the Weibull distribution is defined with the exceedance distribution function (aka survival function) $\exp[-(x/\lambda)^k]$. If I transform the random variable $x$ using $x'=ax^b$ ...

### Improper Prior in Logit and Probit Models: Proper Posterior Conditions

Let $y_i \vert p_i \sim \mathrm{Bernoulli}(p_i)$, $p_i = F_h(X_i^\prime \beta) \ \ , \ \ h = 1,2 \ ,\ \ X , \beta \in \mathbb R^p$, where $F_1(x) = (2\pi)^{-1/2}\int_{-\infty}^x \exp(-t^2/2) \ dt \$ ...

### Is there any strong argument about objective/non-informative improper prior?

Decades ago improper objective priors - e.g. $\pi(\sigma) \propto \sigma^{-1}, \sigma > 0,$ for a scale parameter - were considered problematic because some authors thought they were leading to the ...

### List of proper Jeffreys priors?

I know that Jeffreys priors are often improper. In fact, the only proper Jeffreys prior that I know is for the success probability in Bernoulli model (the prior arcsine). I am curious to know if there ...

### Example of a uniform prior not being objective

The key feature of a truly objective prior is that it is invariant under change of variables. I understand this concept, however, I'm having a hard time finding a simple 1D or 2D example of when you ...

I'm doing some simulations using a M-H MCMC, and I was thinking of using some objective priors for some parameters. These parameters must be in $\mathbb{R}^+$. I was thinking of using \$\pi(\theta)\...
