    Question Prior probability distribution for k [a;b]




    Hi folks.

    I've a question.

    Let k be a parameter which must be estimated. It lies within the interval [a;b], a and b being finite real numbers.

    Let us further assume we dispose of a series of measurements X of known standard deviations.
    X is a complex function of k.

    What are Jeffreys prior and Bernardo's prior?

    Many thanks for your answer :-)

    Do we dispose of some type of guarantee that these priors imitate the shape of the likelihood in such a way that the posterior distribution delivers us a result close enough to the Maximum Likelihood Estimate?
