A methodology for the simultaneous Bayesian nonparametric modelling of several distributions
is developed. Our approach uses normalized random measures with independent
increments and builds dependence through the superposition of shared processes. The properties
of the prior are described and the modelling possibilities of this framework are explored in
some detail. Efficient slice sampling methods are developed for inference. Various posterior
summaries are introduced which allow better understanding of the differences between distributions.
The methods are illustrated on simulated data and examples from survival analysis
and stochastic frontier analysis.
