Summary:
Requiring only a background in introductory statistics, calculus, and matrix algebra, Bayesian Methods: A Social and Behavioral Sciences Approach provides detailed explanations of derivations and theories using a computationally oriented approach. This second edition features new updates on topics such as Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms, perfect sampling, and Bayesian nonparametrics. The author emphasizes  Read more...

schema:description"Requiring only a background in introductory statistics, calculus, and matrix algebra, Bayesian Methods: A Social and Behavioral Sciences Approach provides detailed explanations of derivations and theories using a computationally oriented approach. This second edition features new updates on topics such as Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms, perfect sampling, and Bayesian nonparametrics. The author emphasizes the R computing environment as well as the Bugs simulation program. With various examples and exercise problems, this text remains an ideal resource for statisticians and is especially designed to help political and social scientists develop a tool chest for statistical analysis."@en
