Nonparametric predictive inference and interval probability.

Augustin, T. and Coolen, F. P. A. (2004) 'Nonparametric predictive inference and interval probability.', Journal of statistical planning and inference., 124 (2). pp. 251-272.


The assumption A(n), proposed by Hill (J. Amer. Statist. Assoc. 63 (1968) 677), provides a natural basis for low structure non-parametric predictive inference, and has been justified in the Bayesian framework. This paper embeds A(n)-based inference into the theory of interval probability, by showing that the corresponding bounds are totally monotone F-probability and coherent. Similar attractive internal consistency results are proven to hold for conditioning and updating.
