We probably ought to make the parameters match with those listed in the Conjugate prior article or vice-versa. --Rhaertel80 (talk) 16:56, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Notation is inconsistent with regard to the distribution of \mu. In the definition, mean is \lambda and variance is \sigma^2 / v, but in the section about generating values from the distribution, mean is v and variance is \sigma^2 / \lambda. I don't have a reference handy so I'm not sure which one is correct. Ksimek (talk) 23:40, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
