In this online course, students will learn how to apply Markov Chain Monte Carlo techniques (MCMC) to Bayesian statistical modeling using WinBUGS and R software.
Topics covered include Gibbs sampling and the Metropolis-Hastings method. Participants will also learn how to implement linear regression (normal and t errors), poisson and loglinear regression, and binary/binomial regression using WinBUGS.
- Week 1: Using Markov Chain Monte Carlo
- Week 2: Sampling From Priors
- Week 3: Linear Regression Modeling in WinBUGS
- Week 4: General Linear Modeling in WinBUGS
