Bayesian Methods for Data Analysis, Third Edition (Chapman & by Bradley P. Carlin,Thomas A. Louis

By Bradley P. Carlin,Thomas A. Louis

Broadening its scope to nonstatisticians, Bayesian equipment for info research, 3rd Edition offers an available creation to the principles and functions of Bayesian research. in addition to an entire reorganization of the cloth, this version concentrates extra on hierarchical Bayesian modeling as carried out through Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) equipment and similar info analytic concepts.

New to the 3rd Edition

  • New facts examples, corresponding R and WinBUGS code, and homework difficulties

  • Explicit descriptions and illustrations of hierarchical modeling—now typical in Bayesian info analysis

  • A new bankruptcy on Bayesian layout that emphasizes Bayesian medical trials

  • A thoroughly revised and increased part on score and histogram estimation

  • A new case research on infectious sickness modeling and the 1918 flu epidemic

  • A suggestions guide for qualifying teachers that comprises recommendations, laptop code, and linked output for each homework problem—available either electronically and in print

  • Ideal for someone appearing Statistical Analyses

    Focusing on purposes from biostatistics, epidemiology, and drugs, this article builds at the approval for its predecessors by way of making it appropriate for much more practitioners and students.
