Abstract:

This comprehensive reference/text provides descriptions, explanations, and examples of the Bayesian approach to statistics - demonstrating the utility of Bayesian methods for analyzing real-world problems in the health sciences.

Containing authoritative contributions from over 40 internationally acclaimed experts in their respective fields, Bayesian Biostatistics elucidates Bayesian methodology ... covers state-of-the-art techniques ... considers the individual components of Bayesian analysis ... stresses the importance of pictorial presentations backed by appropriate mathematical analysis ... describes computer software vital for Bayesian analysis and tells how to access the software ... and more.
