Case Studies in Bayesian Statistical Modelling and Analysis by Walter A. Shewhart, Samuel S. Wilks(eds.)

By Walter A. Shewhart, Samuel S. Wilks(eds.)

This e-book goals to provide an advent to Bayesian modelling and computation, by means of contemplating genuine case reviews drawn from various fields spanning ecology, overall healthiness, genetics and finance. every one bankruptcy includes an outline of the matter, the corresponding version, the computational technique, effects and inferences in addition to the problems that come up within the implementation of those techniques.

Case stories in Bayesian Statistical Modelling and Analysis:

  • Illustrates the best way to do Bayesian research in a transparent and concise demeanour utilizing real-world difficulties.
  • Each bankruptcy makes a speciality of a real-world challenge and describes the way the matter could be analysed utilizing Bayesian equipment.
  • Features techniques that may be utilized in a large zone of program, similar to, health and wellbeing, the surroundings, genetics, details technological know-how, drugs, biology, and distant sensing.

Case stories in Bayesian Statistical Modelling and Analysis is aimed toward statisticians, researchers and practitioners who've a few services in statistical modelling and research, and a few knowing of the fundamentals of Bayesian facts, yet little adventure in its program. Graduate scholars of information and biostatistics also will locate this booklet precious.
