Abstract : The object of this book is to explore the use and relevance of Bayes' theorem to problems such as arise in scientific investigation in which inferences must be made concerning parameter values about which little is known a priori. A number of standard problems concerned with comparison of location and scale parameters are studied from a Bayesian viewpoint. (Author)
