Equivariant HPD credible sets and MAP estimators

Abstract : MAP estimators and HPD credible sets are often criticized in the literature because of paradoxical behaviour due to a lack of equivariance under reparametrization. In this paper, we propose a new version of MAP estimators and HPD credible sets that avoid this undesirable feature. Moreover, in the special case of non-informative prior, the new MAP estimators coincide with the equivariant frequentist ML estimators. We also propose several adaptations in the case of nuisance parameters.
