A Course in Bayesian Statistics (STATS 270)

  • Not Offered

3 units

Letter or Credit/No Credit

This course will treat Bayesian statistics at a relatively advanced level. Assuming familiarity with standard probability and multivariate distribution theory, we will provide a discussion of the mathematical and theoretical foundation for Bayesian inferential procedures. In particular, we will examine the construction of priors and the asymptotic properties of likelihoods and posterior distributions. The discussion will include but will not be limited to the case of finite dimensional parameter space. There will also be some discussions on the computational algorithms useful for Bayesian inference. Prerequisites: Stats 116 or equivalent probability course, plus basic programming knowledge; basic calculus, analysis and linear algebra strongly recommended; Stats 200 or equivalent statistical theory course desirable.
