Detailed Description

This workshop introduces students to Bayesian inference and estimation via MCMC.  The morning session will cover the core logic of Bayesian inference, its connection to Maximum Likelihood inference, and how Bayesian inference applies in the context of standard statistical models.  The afternoon lab session will cover estimation by MCMC, including a demonstration of fitting and interpreting standard linear and logistic regression models using Bayesian methods from within R.  This workshop assumes familiarity with applied regression modelling at the level of MY452/552 and, ideally, some experience with the statistical programming language R.
