STAT 240 Bayesian Statistics

This course will provide an introduction to the theory and methods of Bayesian statistics. In Bayesian statistics, one's inference about parameters and hypotheses are updated, using Bayes rule, as evidence/data accumulates. We will discuss the theory and how to do Bayesian data analysis. Computational aspects will also be discussed, and we will make use of R, JAGS/Stan, to do the inference.
