Data Analysis: A Bayesian Tutorial. Devinderjit Sivia , John Skilling. Statistics lectures have been a source of much bewilderment and frustration for generations of students. This book attempts to remedy the situation by expounding a logical and unified approach to the whole subject of data analysis. This text is intended as a tutorial guide for senior undergraduates and research students in science and engineering.
Parameter estimation II. Example 4: amplitude of a signal in the presence of background.
Reliabilities: best estimates, correlations and error-bars. Example 5: Gaussian noise revisited.
Algorithms: a numerical interlude, Approximations: maximum likelihood and least-squares, Error-propagation: changing variables.
Model selection. Introduction: the story of Mr A and Mr B.
Example 6: how many lines are there? This difference in approach makes the text ideal as a tutorial guide forsenior undergraduates and research students, in science and engineering. After explaining the basic principles of Bayesian probability theory, their use is illustrated with a variety of examples ranging from elementary parameter estimation to image processing.
With its central emphasis on a fewfundamental rules, this book takes the mystery out of statistics by providing a clear rationale for some of the most widely-used procedures.
Parameter estimation I. The central limit theorem. Model selection. NMR spectroscopy Cdating graphfitting and so on.
Third Edition. Broadening its scope to nonstatisticians, Bayesian Methods for Data Analysis, Third Edition provides an accessible introduction to the foundations and applications of Bayesian analysis. Along with a complete reorganization of the material, this edition concentrates more on hierarchical Bayesian modeling as implemented via Andrew Gelman, John B. Carlin, Hal S.
