As a former philosophy student, who cared little for mathematics in university, can someone point me in the direction of a resource that would allow me to understand the notation in this article? I understand the problem as described, but unfortunately not the notation.

I've discovered this, for anyone else who might need similar help: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mathematical_symbols

Though I am glad to see nonparametric Bayes on HN, what is it that you want to point out?

I've read it several times but I can't understand the problem from the description in this article. Does anyone know of a simpler explanation?

I can submit random wikipedia articles, too
