Title:A Primer for Bayesian Statistics
Speaker: Ed Boone
Bayesian statistics is a wide branch of statistics that mirrors
the classical or frequentist approach to statistics. In this seminar
we will introduce both the philosophical and practical issues of the Bayesian
approach. Concepts such as posterior estimation and updating will be
explored as well as hierarchical methods. Numerous examples will be
provided to illustrate the concepts. This seminar should be accessible
to anyone having completed a Basic Statistics course.
