However, the main results are not these point estimators, but in the fact that the

full

**predictive**density can be obtained from (4.6). Figure 3 shows the (Pascal)density obtained at the start of the experiment {t — 0) ; for our parameters the

initial ...

If the

**predictive**mean of some random variable y is a linear function of a « naturalestimator », y — y(@v), formed from the data, 3>v, then we refer to the formula for
