The link to the normal-inverse-wishart distribution does not work Helenuh (talk) 14:51, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

This is because it is not yet written. Please go ahead writing it if you are capable :-) — fnielsen (talk) 11:30, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

the parameterspace cannot be correct as it is written here... maybe m>p??? --Philtime (talk) 07:16, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

I noticed that as well. (should be m>p-1). fixed—3mta3 (talk) 18:45, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Inverse-Wishart distribution for p=1[edit]

See Section The parametriztion for p=1 is not correct. In relation to the inverted gamma distribution it should say α=(m+1)/2, β is correct Can anybody verify that?


Looks odd in the title, and is not in the article text. Can someone explain? Tony (talk) 12:45, 20 October 2011 (UTC)


There appears to be more than one parametrization for the inverse Wishart (and presumably the Wishart), making known results mutually unintelligible. Is there a mapping somewhere between them all? Shabbychef (talk) 18:58, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
