Abstract

The distribution of a random variable p, where p is constrained on the domain 0 < p < 1, is often of interest. For example, p could be a subjectively estimated probability of a subject’s preference for an item, or it could be the fraction of questions that a subject answers correctly on a test. In examples like these, the beta distribution is often used for the probability density function (PDF) of p, that is, the distribution of the random variable p over a set of subjects.
