I am reading a topic on Bayesian Inference.I read books from different authors but they are all the same. I cannot see how the terms are derived.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Could anyone briefly explain what is going on and what is it that we are trying to find using this Bayesian. Bayesian is a combination of belief from past data. So Im thinking that we are making the prediction. But Im not sure of what sort of prediction. Is ther an example to this.

I need help in understanding the 1) Bayesian formalism and

2) the mean of a gaussian distribution - how are the parameters; mu and the variance are derived and how is the posterior distri bution derived as well.

By the way could anyone suggest any recommended books for this topic. Thx
