Table of contents Introduction and examples -- belief, probability and exchangeability -- One-parameter models -- Monte Carlo approximation -- the normal model -- Posterior approximation with the Gibbs sampler -- the multivariate normal model -- Group comparisons and hierarchical modeling -- Linear regression -- Nonconjugate priors and Metropolis-Hastings algorithms -- Linear and generalized linear mixed effects models -- Latent variable methods for ordinal data.
This compact, self-contained introduction to the theory and application of Bayesian statistical methods is accessible to those with a basic familiarity with probability, yet allows advanced readers to grasp the principles underlying Bayesian theory and method.
