A Quasi Bayesian Approach to Outlier Detection
A quasi Bayesian procedure is developed for the detection of outliers. A particular Gaussian distribution with ordered means is assumed as the basic model of the data distribution. By introducing a definition of the likelihood of a model whose parameters are determined by the method of maximum likelihood, the posterior probability of the model is obtained for a particular choice of the prior probability distribution. Numerical examples are given to illustrate the practical utility of the procedure.
