Definition: Assume a generative model $m$ with likelihood function $p(y \vert \theta, m)$ and a uniform prior distribution $p_{\mathrm{uni}}(\theta \vert m)$. Then, the log model evidence of this model is called “log model evidence with uniform prior” or “uniform-prior log model evidence” (upLME):

\[\label{eq:upLME} \mathrm{upLME}(m) = \log \int p(y \vert \theta, m) \, p_{\mathrm{uni}}(\theta \vert m) \, \mathrm{d}\theta \; .\]
