A Bayesian view of the Poisson-Dirichlet Process

Buntine, Wray; Hutter, Marcus


The two parameter Poisson-Dirichlet Process (PDP), a generalisation of the Dirichlet Process, is increasingly being used for probabilistic modelling in discrete areas such as language technology, bioinformatics, and image analysis. There is a rich literature about the PDP and its derivative distributions such as the Chinese Restaurant Process (CRP). This article reviews some of the basic theory and then the major results needed for Bayesian modelling of discrete problems including details of...[Show more]
