Bayes Factors

#Bayesian #Model Selection

$$ \frac{p(\mathscr M_1|y)}{ p(\mathscr M_2|y) } = \frac{p(\mathscr M_1)}{ p(\mathscr M_2) }\frac{p(y|\mathscr M_1)}{ p(y|\mathscr M_2) } $$

Bayes factor

$$ \mathrm{BF_{12}} = \frac{m(y|\mathscr M_1)}{m(y|\mathscr M_2)} $$

  • $\mathrm{BF_{12}}$: how many time more likely is model $\mathscr M_1$ than $\mathscr M_2$.
