Definition: Let $m$ be a full probability model with likelihood function $p(y \vert \theta, m)$ and prior distribution $p(\theta \vert m)$. Then, the log model evidence (LME) of $m$ is defined as the logarithm of the marginal likelihood of this model:
\[\label{eq:LME} \mathrm{LME}(m) = \log p(y|m) \; .\]- Soch J, Allefeld C (2018): "MACS – a new SPM toolbox for model assessment, comparison and selection"; in: Journal of Neuroscience Methods, vol. 306, pp. 19-31, eq. 13; URL: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0165027018301468; DOI: 10.1016/j.jneumeth.2018.05.017.
