Xn ) is calculated, all of the information on the parameters of interest is available. Therefore, we can calculate plausible values for the unknown parameter (the mean, the median or some other measure of central tendency), its standard deviation, confidence intervals, or perform hypothesis testing on its value. parameter θ . Once this problem is resolved, the fourth point is easily tackled with the help of Bayes’ theorem. Bayes’ theorem can be expressed, in its continuous form, by: f (D |θ ) · f (θ ) f (D) f (D |θ ) · f (θ ) = .
