Probability theory

MR0637937 Aldous, David J. Representations for partially exchangeable arrays of random variables. J. Multivariate Anal. 11 (1981), no. 4, 581–598.

  • Errata (pg 587, line -8) Corollary 2.15(b) should be 2.5(b).
  • (pg 588, line 1) Reference to (2.16) probably should be to (2.6).
  • (pg 588) Proof of Lemma 2.18, references integrating correctly over generating rectangles. To replicate this argument, consider the conditional expectation, with respect to \alpha^\star, of 1_{F_1\cap F_2\cap F_3} E^{\alpha^*,W_j}\phi(V_j) and 1_{F_1\cap F_2\cap F_3} E^{\alpha^*,W_i;i\ge1}\phi(V_j), using the fact that E^{\mathcal F} E^{\mathcal G} \xi = E^{\mathcal F} \xi for sub-s-algebras \mathcal F \subseteq \mathcal G. See FMP, Thm 6.1.
  • Errata (pg 588, line -10) Z_i=(R_i^+,R_i^-) should be Z_i=(R_i^+,R_i^-,C_i^-).

MR1880234 Seidenfeld, Teddy; Schervish, Mark J.; Kadane, Joseph B. Improper regular conditional distributions. Ann. Probab. 29 (2001), no. 4, 1612–1624.

  • Errata See for errata and clarifications involving definition 6, the definition of Borel spaces, Theorem 4 and Lemma 3.
  • Errata (pg 1618, line 19) Equation in Example 4 should read P(\{x'\} | \mathcal A)(\omega) instead of P(x' | \mathcal A)(\omega).
