A Bayesian CART algorithm Academic Article uri icon


  • A stochastic search form of classification and regression tree (CART) analysis (Breiman et al., 1984) is proposed, motivated by a Bayesian model. An approximation to a probability distribution over the space of possible trees is explored using reversible jump Markov chain Monte Carlo methods (Green, 1995).
