Problems using this archive? Some questions and answers.

Note : If you prefer to get documents by ftp rather than by clicking in a web browser, then you can get to most of these files by anonymous ftp to wol.ra.phy.cam.ac.uk, cd pub/www/mackay.

Conversely, if you want to get a document by http rather than by ftp, change the address from ftp://www.inference.org.uk/pub/www/mackay/blah to http://www.inference.org.uk/mackay/blah.

when I logged into your web address as sent, I got a bunch of nondescript characters which at least my Nestscape 1.12 was not deciphering.
OK - that means that your Netscape doesn't know about uncompressing files ending in .ps.gz and displaying them with ghostview. The thing to do in that situation is to select "Save As file" from the "File" menu, saving to name.ps.gz, then uncompress (gunzip) it by hand and then view the postscript in your favourite manner.

    Automatic Relevance Determination (ARD) by MacKay and Neal.
    This paper is not available, and will perhaps never be completed. But please see pred.ps and network.ps above, and buy Radford Neal's book (Springer, 1996); all the information is there.
