## JSM 2010 [talk]

**H**ere are the slides of the talk I am presenting on Monday at JSM 2010 in Vancouver, in the *Bayesian Inference in Massive Data Problems* session organised by Alexandra Schmidt: it is about *Bayesian model choice in cosmology*

It borrowed from Darren Wraith’s presentation at JSM 2009 by adding more items on evidence estimation, in connection with our lastest cosmology paper. Obviously, 64 slides for 25 minutes is a bit extra-galactic, even at the speed of light, so I will scrap all the technical sections on PMC, AMIS and focus on the implementation for the cosmology problem.** **

**Ps-**If anyone has an idea as to why two pages are rotated during the ps2pdf process, thanks for sharing your thoughts!

I don’t know why ps2pdf rotated your pages, but pdftk is a great tool that should let you fix up the pdf after the fact.

Thanks, Iain. Larry Wasserman sent me the command

ps2pdf -dAutoRotatePages=/Nonethat did the trick, But indeedpdftk in.pdf cat 1-18 19E 20-end output out.pdfwould have done the job too. Thanks!
