The training in data analysis that most of us are given as undergraduates consists of .. D. S. Sivia, Data analysis – a Bayesian tutorial, Oxford University Press. Data Analysis: A Bayesian Tutorial provides such a text, putting emphasis as This difference in approach makes the text ideal as a tutorial guide forsenior. 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.

The Second Edition of this successful tutorial book contains a new chapter on extensions to the ubiquitous least-squares procedure, allowing for the straightforward handling of outliers and unknown correlated noise, and x cutting-edge contribution from John Skilling on a novel numerical technique for Bayesian computation called ‘nested sampling’.

Lots more math than those courses but that’s to be expected for a book on Bayewian learning. Bayesian Models for Astrophysical Data: Anderson and Robert M. 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.

In particular, abandoning the usual emphasis on analytical solutions bayeskan instead pairing real examples with numerical solution algorithms when appropriate, is perfect for someone concerned with applying Bayesian statistical analysis to real problems.

Devinderjit SiviaJohn Skilling. This book not only is a good book to learn Bayesian statistics from, but it’s also a great reference for the subject as well. Want to Read saving….

Data Analysis – Devinderjit Sivia; John Skilling – Oxford University Press

This book attempts to remedy the situation by expounding a logical and unified approach to the whole subject of data analysis. I am enjoying reading it for the first time, and plan to use it as a reference in the future. Sivia and Skilling give a concise and clear exposition of Bayesian statistical analysis, and pair it with practical, real examples.

A Bayesian Tutorial provides such a sivka, putting emphasis as much on understanding “why” and “when” certain statistical procedures should be used as “how”. Non-parametric Estimation, Sivia 7. Other topics covered include reliability analysis, multivariate optimization, least-squares and maximum likelihood, error-propagation, hypothesis testing, maximum entropy and experimental design.

Data Analysis: A Bayesian Tutorial

It is perfect for someone who wants to hit the ground running in applying these methods to real problems. Fills a need for a concise ‘basic’ introduction to Bayesian learning. Jeongho Park rated it it was amazing Aug 30, I enjoyed the first few chapters of this book. The only background needed is some multivariate calculus.
