An application of Bayes rule also yields readily a description of the distribution of p|Un = u, where the normalizer is Pp Qn(p) j=1 κej (u).

The result then follows by applications of Bayes rule to (45).

One now only needs to apply simple Bayes rule to obtain an expression in terms of the posterior distribution of N |W and the marginal distribution of W.
Bayesian Poisson process partition calculus with an application to Bayesian L\'evy moving averages
That is to say, similar to parametric Bayesian results obtained via classical Bayes rule, one will often require a finer analysis which now, given the results in Theorems 3.1 and 3.2, depends on exploiting the specific features of h and ν .

Applying Bayes’ identity repeatedly we thus obtain P(E(1−γ )n |A′ V ) ≥ N −o(1) .
Inverse Littlewood-Offord theorems and the condition number of random discrete matrices
From these two axioms and the presumption that probability assignments should be real (for arguments against this presumption see ) we can easily derive the basic rules of probability theory: probabilities obey Bayes’ rule, and disjoint propositions have additive probabilities .

Bohr’s philosophy and Einstein’s notion of spacetime coincidence) and are combined in standard Boolean ways which suggests that Cox’s proofs can be passed across and that one can invoke Bayes’ rule (which Hardy does).
