We will fix λ at some specified value to reflect the fact that we are interested in modeling situations in which the variable under consideration has a distribution with longer tails than the normal distribution. Typically, this manifests itself in a histogram of the data with a roughly symmetric shape but exhibiting a few extreme values out in

the tails, so a t (λ)  distribution might be appropriate.

This distribution is not immediately recognizable, and it is not at all clear how to generate

from it.

It is natural, then, to see if we can implement Gibbs sampling. To do this directly, we need an algorithm to generate from the posterior of µ given the value of σ2 and an algorithm to generate from the posterior of σ      given µ Unfortunately, neither of these conditional distributions is amenable to the techniques discussed in Section 2.10,

so we cannot implement Gibbs sampling directly.
