#### Bayesian Computation with R

Springer New York 2009; US$ 59.95There has been a dramatic growth in the development and application of Bayesian inferential methods. Some of this growth is due to the availability of powerful simulation-based algorithms to summarize posterior distributions. There has been also a growing interest in the use of the system R for statistical analyses. R's open source nature, free... more...

#### Case Studies in Bayesian Statistical Modelling and Analysis

Wiley 2012; US$ 105.00 US$ 91.00Provides an accessible foundation to Bayesian analysis using real world models This book aims to present an introduction to Bayesian modelling and computation, by considering real case studies drawn from diverse fields spanning ecology, health, genetics and finance. Each chapter comprises a description of the problem, the corresponding model,... more...

#### Bayesian Theory

Wiley 2009; US$ 509.00 US$ 441.13This highly acclaimed text, now available in paperback, provides a thorough account of key concepts and theoretical results, with particular emphasis on viewing statistical inference as a special case of decision theory. Information-theoretic concepts play a central role in the development of the theory, which provides, in particular, a detailed discussion... more...

#### Rational Decisions

Princeton University Press 2008; US$ 31.95 US$ 25.56It is widely held that Bayesian decision theory is the final word on how a rational person should make decisions. However, Leonard Savage--the inventor of Bayesian decision theory--argued that it would be ridiculous to use his theory outside the kind of small world in which it is always possible to "look before you leap." If taken seriously, this... more...

#### Spatial and Spatio-temporal Bayesian Models with R - INLA

Wiley 2015; US$ 90.95 US$ 78.82Spatial and Spatio-Temporal Bayesian Models with R-INLA provides a much needed, practically oriented & innovative presentation of the combination of Bayesian methodology and spatial statistics. The authors combine an introduction to Bayesian theory and methodology with a focus on the spatial and spatio-temporal models used within the... more...

#### Introduction to Bayesian Statistics

Wiley 2013; US$ 160.00 US$ 138.67Praise for the First Edition "I cannot think of a better book for teachers of introductory statistics who want a readable and pedagogically sound text to introduce Bayesian statistics." — Statistics in Medical Research "[This book] is written in a lucid conversational style, which is so rare in mathematical writings. It does an excellent... more...

#### Bayesian Epistemology

OUP Oxford 2004; US$ 54.99 US$ 47.29Probability theory is increasingly important to philosophy. Bayesian probabilistic models offer us ways of getting to grips with fundamental problems about information, coherence, reliability, confirmation, and testimony, and thus show how we can justify beliefs and evaluate theories. Bovens and Hartmann provide a systematic guide to the use of probabilistic... more...

#### Bayesian Methods for Measures of Agreement

CRC Press 2009; US$ 109.95Using WinBUGS to implement Bayesian inferences of estimation and testing hypotheses, Bayesian Methods for Measures of Agreement presents useful methods for the design and analysis of agreement studies. It focuses on agreement among the various players in the diagnostic process. The author employs a Bayesian approach to provide statistical inferences... more...
