Chapter 8: Sufficiency, ancillarity, and all that

  • p. 254, eqn. (8.29), fourth line: there is a missing comma -- `` $f(t_{i} \theta)$'' should be `` $f(t_{i}, \theta)$''.

  • p. 256, eqn. (8.46): `` $= v(z_1,...,z_n)$'' probably should be inserted after ``$p(Z \mid I)$'', as otherwise the ``$v(z_{j})$'' in eqn. (8.47) has no referent.

  • p. 262, eqn. (8.65): `` $p(H_{0} \mid I)$'', in the first term of the right-hand-side of the equation, should be `` $p(H_{0} \mid D
I)$''.

  • p. 263, eqn. (8.71): ``$p(H_{0} I)$'', in the first term of the expression between the square brackets, should be `` $p(H_{0} \mid I)$''.

  • p. 267, footnote 8: There is no reference ``Jaynes (1985e)'' in either the References or Bibliography sections of the book, although the References section contains a ``Jaynes (1985)''.
