**Bayesian Field Theory**

by J. C. Lemm

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2000**Number of pages**: 200

**Description**:

Bayesian field theory denotes a nonparametric Bayesian approach for learning functions from observational data. Based on the principles of Bayesian statistics, a particular Bayesian field theory is defined by combining two models: a likelihood model, providing a probabilistic description of the measurement process, and a prior model, providing the information necessary to generalize from training to non-training data.
