We have seen the Minimum Message Length (MML) and other treatments of "simple" hypotheses over "simple" data such as finite choices, e.g. multi-state, and continuous values, e.g. normal distribution, etc. It turns out that structured hypotheses can be formed from combinations of simple hypotheses plus a component to describe the particular structure.

A few examples:
