Gianluca Mazzarella Combining Jump and Kink Ratio Estimators in Regression Discontinuity Design Dave Woods (University of Southampton) Design of Experiments for Bayesian Model Discrimination The design of any experiment is implicitly Bayesian, with prior knowledge being used informally to aid decisions such as which factors to vary and the choice of plausible causal relationships between the factors and measured responses. Bayesian methods allow uncertainty in these decisions to be incorporated into design selection through prior distributions that encapsulate information available from...
