Just as we defined a model as a probability distribution, a Bayesian views model uncertainty as simply a hierarchical probability distribution with one layer consisting of shocks and variables to be integrated over, and another layer averaging over models.
The control (right) panel contains a list box to select a probability distribution for the population, a spin button for a sample size selection, a list box for selecting multiple samples at once, and two command buttons for animation (a single sample or multiple samples).
The first step in creating a Monte Carlo simulation is to decide which probability distribution to apply.
The radiocarbon date ranges are reported in Table 1 as the two- tailed 95% interval of a summed probability distribution (SPD), while the full probability distribution (between 8000-0 BC) is plotted in Figures 3 and 4.
Mathematically, a BNs represents a joint probability distribution P over a set of random variables X = {[X.
One important property of BNs is their ability to represent the joint probability distribution P([A.
The LLN ensures that as the number of random samples collected from a probability distribution is increased, the sample mean converges to the true population mean, and the CLT guarantees that the sampling distribution of the mean will be Gaussian, provided there are a sufficient number of independent observations.
If a market price development process is an independent random walk (probability of each step direction is independent on the past, length of each step is also independent and it has certain average step length) probability distribution is of a Gaussian type.
