Bayesian nonparametric inference for random distributions and related functions.
General asymptotics and power laws. For the construction of general random measures, see Projective limit random probabilities on Polish spaces.
The construction of models which do not admit such representations is a bit more demanding. Annals of Statistics, 1 2 The following monograph is a good reference that provides many more details. An excellent introduction to Gaussian process models and many references can be found in the monograph by Rasmussen and Williams.
For Bayesian nonparametrics, urns provide a probabilistic tool to study the sizes of clusters in a clustering model, or more generally the weight distributions of random discrete measures.

Further models and applications Nils Lid Hjort; 5. Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning. On the consistency of Bayes estimates with discussion. Gibbs sampling methods for stick-breaking priors. Journal of Mathematical Psychology More by Stephen G.
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. Fuzione caratteristica di un fenomeno aleatorio.
Misspecification in infinite-dimensional Bayesian statistics. If you are interested in urns and power laws, I recommend that you have a look at the following two survey articles in this order: There is one and only one article to read on the basic Gibbs samplers: You have access to this content.
In Proceedings bayesiah the International Congress of Mathematicians, Point processes Random discrete measures have natural representations as point processes. Cambridge University Press, For a wider range of material Kingman’s book has only pagesI have found the two volumes by Daley and Vere-Jones quite useful.
This coherent text gives ready access both to underlying principles and to state-of-the-art practice. Review quote “The book looks like it will be useful to a wide range of researchers. If so, look no further: 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 of the best expository texts in probability.
Hjort , Walker : Quantile pyramids for Bayesian nonparametrics
Antoniak introduces the idea of using a parametric likelihood with a DP or MDP, which he refers to as “random noise” cf his Theorem 3 and as a sampling distribution cf Example 4. Journal of the American Statistical Association, If this is used with a DP, the resulting distribution is identical to a Dirichlet process mixture model.
Book ratings by Bayeeian. However, this book is probably not a good place to start if you do not already have a reasonable knowledge of the field. For nonparametric Bayesan inference we use a prior which supports piecewise linear quantile functions, based on the need to work with a finite set of partitions, yet we show that the limiting version of the prior exists.
You do not have access to this content. The conditional probability of a point process given a sample point has a number of specific properties that general conditional probabilities do not satisfy.
Tutorials on Bayesian Nonparametrics
A tutorial on Bayesian nonparametric models. This problem has motivated my own work on conjugate models since conjugacy is the only reasonably general way we know to get from the prior and data to the posterior ; see e. Annals of Applied Probability, to appear.
Annals of Statistics, 12 1: Probability Theory and Related Fields, In applications, these models are typically used as priors on the mixing measure of a mixture model e. Notes on the occupancy problem with infinitely many boxes: Surveys Yee Whye Teh and I have written a short introductory article: A result going back to Doob shows that under very mild identifiability conditions any Bayesian model is consistent in the weak sense: Nonpaeametrics introduction to the theory of point processes.
