Think Bayes


If you know the way to software with Python and in addition comprehend a bit approximately chance, you’re able to take on Bayesian facts. With this e-book, you are going to the best way to remedy statistical issues of Python code rather than mathematical notation, and use discrete chance distributions rather than non-stop arithmetic. when you get the mathematics out of ways, the Bayesian basics becomes clearer, and you’ll start to observe those innovations to real-world problems.

Bayesian statistical equipment have gotten extra universal and extra vital, yet now not many assets can be found to aid newbies. in keeping with undergraduate sessions taught by means of writer Allen Downey, this book’s computational strategy is helping you get a superb start.

  • Use your latest programming abilities to profit and comprehend Bayesian statistics
  • Work with difficulties concerning estimation, prediction, determination research, facts, and speculation testing
  • Get began with basic examples, utilizing cash, M&Ms, Dungeons & Dragons cube, paintball, and hockey
  • Learn computational tools for fixing real-world difficulties, corresponding to examining SAT rankings, simulating kidney tumors, and modeling the human microbiome.
