The Bayesian approach to statistical inference allows the user to update their model based on prior evidence and observed data. The methodology can be complex, and it is only in the last 25 years or so, with the dramatic increase in computing power that they have become more popular. They are now used across the sciences and industry, with applications to medical research and epidemiology, social science, finance, and many other areas.
Bayesian methods are now taught in every graduate program in statistics, sometimes at undergraduate level, and increasingly as a standard course in other fields. CRC Press is the leading publisher of textbooks for Bayesian methods, with books aimed specifically at statistics graduate students, students in the social sciences, and self-studying practitioners. This CRC Press Freebook presents six chapters from some of our leading textbooks in the field.
