Conjugate prior, Advanced Statistics

Conjugate prior: The distribution for samples from the particular probability distribution such that the posterior distribution at each stage of the sampling is of the identical family, regardless of the values observed in the sample. For instance, the family of beta distributions is conjugate for the samples from a binomial distribution, and family of gamma distributions is the conjugate for samples from the exponential distribution.
