Bayesian statistics in the frame of the maximum entropy concept has widely been used for inferential problems, particularly, to infer dynamic properties of strongly correlated fermion systems from Quantum-Monte-Carlo (QMC) imaginary time data. In current applications, however, a consistent treatment of the error-covariance of the QMC data is missing. Here we present a closed Bayesian approach to account consistently for the QMC-data.
