On Probability Leakage

Preprint English OPEN
Briggs, William M.;
  • Subject: Mathematics - Statistics Theory

The probability leakage of model M with respect to evidence E is defined. Probability leakage is a kind of model error. It occurs when M implies that events $y$, which are impossible given E, have positive probability. Leakage does not imply model falsification. Models ... View more
