In this online course, students will learn why Bayesian computing has gained wide popularity, and how to apply Markov Chain Monte Carlo techniques (MCMC) to Bayesian statistical modeling the BUGS package (WinBUGS/OPENBUGS). Participants will learn how to use BUGS software, use it to estimate parameters of standard distributions, and implement simple regression models.
- Week 1: Introduction to Bayesian MCMC
- Week 2: Bayesian Programming in BUGS
- Week 3: Bayesian Posteriors
- Week 4: Bayesian Regression
