Abstract

This paper provides a novel approach to constructing bivariate prior distributions. The idea is based on the notion of partial exchangeability. In particular, in a simple extension of the exchangeable sequence, we create two dependent exchangeable sequences via a branching mechanism. This implies the existence of a bivariate prior distribution.
