Elan, Evans, Carlin and Lewis in their 3rd edition of Bayesian Methods for Data Analysis describe the Bayesian Shrinkage factor B = sigma^2/(sigma^2 + tau^2) where tau^2 would be the variance of the prior distribution while sigma^2 would be the normal density of the sample (or likelihood), p. 17. B is also used to compute the posterior mean = B (mu) + (1-B)y a weighted average of the prior mean and that of the sample. Regards, Bob Robert A.
