Think Bayes


If you know the way to application with Python and in addition recognize a bit approximately chance, you’re able to take on Bayesian statistics. With this booklet, you are going to how you can remedy statistical issues of Python code rather than mathematical notation, and use discrete likelihood distributions rather than non-stop arithmetic. when you get the mathematics out of how, the Bayesian basics turns into clearer, and you’ll start to observe those suggestions to real-world problems.

Bayesian statistical equipment have gotten extra universal and extra very important, yet no longer many assets can be found to assist rookies. in keeping with undergraduate sessions taught via writer Allen Downey, this book’s computational procedure is helping you get a superb start.

  • Use your present programming talents to benefit and comprehend Bayesian statistics
  • Work with difficulties concerning estimation, prediction, choice research, proof, and speculation testing
  • Get all started with basic examples, utilizing cash, M&Ms, Dungeons & Dragons cube, paintball, and hockey
  • Learn computational equipment for fixing real-world difficulties, akin to reading SAT ratings, simulating kidney tumors, and modeling the human microbiome.
