Bayesian Goodness of Fit Testing with Mixtures of Triangular Distributions

Journal Article

Abstract.  We consider the consistency of the Bayes factor in goodness of fit testing for a parametric family of densities against a non‐parametric alternative. Sufficient conditions for consistency of the Bayes factor are determined and demonstrated with priors using certain mixtures of triangular densities.
