STAT 341 Bayesian Statistics (Q)

Last offered Spring 2013

The probability of an event can be defined in two ways: (1) the long-run frequency of the event, or (2) the belief that the event will occur. Classical statistical inference is built on the first definition given above, while Bayesian statistical inference is built on the second. This course will introduce the student to methods in Bayesian statistics. Topics covered include: prior distributions, posterior distributions, conjugacy, and Bayesian inference in single-parameter, multi-parameter, and hierarchical models. The computational issues associated with each of these topics will also be discussed.
