Bayesian nonparametric estimators derived from conditional Gibbs structures

Lijoi, Antonio, Prunster, Igor, Walker, Stephen G. (2008) Bayesian nonparametric estimators derived from conditional Gibbs structures. Annals of Applied Probability, 18 (4). pp. 1519-1547. ISSN 1050-5164. (doi:10.1214/07-AAP495) (KAR id:12673)


We consider discrete nonparametric priors which induce Gibbs-type exchangeable random partitions and investigate their posterior behavior in detail. In particular, we deduce conditi onal distributions and the corresponding Bayesian nonparametric estimators, which can be readily exploited for predicting various features of additional samples. The results provide useful tools for genomic applications where prediction of future outcomes is required
