Bernardo, J. M. (ed.) et al., Bayesian statistics 6. Proceedings of the 6th Valencia international meeting, Alcoceber near Valencia, Spain, June 6-10, 1998. Oxford: Clarendon Press. 415-440 (1999).
Summary: This review paper aims at presenting the various convergence diagnostics available in the literature in a cohesive and conceptually consecutive manner. To this effect, we attempt classification according to several filters, as well as a description of a Web site, which aims at keeping track of the on-going research on the topic.
