The joint distribution of class J and feature vector X, when there are two classes, and the feature vector dimension is one. The first panel shows a jittered scatter plot of (X, J), the middle panel shows the class conditional densities f1 and f2 as well as the marginal density fX, whereas the last panel shows the two posterior probabilities. The prior probabilities are P1 = 0.6 and P2 = 1 − P1.
