Seminar of philosophy of mathematics
Following in the steps of Andrew last year, I will make a presentation in the seminar of philosophy of mathematics (and statistics!) of Université Paris Diderot, in about two weeks (November 30, 9am/6pm, Université Paris Diderot – Site Rive Gauche, Bâtiment Condorcet 4, rue Elsa Morante, 75013, Paris.). Here is my abstract, the slides will come later:
Classical Bayesian model selection, alternatives and criticisms Christian P. Robert (Université Paris-Dauphine, Institut Universitaire de France and CREST)
I will cover the most orthodox approach to Bayesian model selection, followed by alternatives that have been recently proposed in the literature and by a description of an on-going controversy with phylogeneticists about the nature of testing.
