Recursive formula for posterior joint distribution.


With notation of the previous section the posterior distribution takes the form of the prior distribution: MATH MATH MATH with the parameters MATH given by the expressions MATH MATH MATH MATH where the $\bar{x}$ and $s^{2}$ are sample's mean and standard deviation MATH , MATH


We replace the dependence on $X$ with the dependence on the statistics $\bar{x}$ and $s^{2}$ : MATH We used the results of the section ( Sufficient statistics for normal sample section ). Therefore, in line with the calculation ( Normal distribution with unknown parameters 1 )-( Normal distribution with unknown parameters 2 ), MATH We extract the MATH term from the above expression: MATH MATH MATH MATH MATH MATH MATH MATH MATH Hence, MATH MATH or MATH and the claim follows.
