Current approaches to Bayesian modeling and data analysis and related statistical methodology based on computational simulation. Fundamentals of Bayesian estimation and hypothesis testing. Multi-level and hierarchical Bayesian modeling for correlated data. Introduction to Markov chain Monte Carlo based estimation approaches such as the Gibbs sampler and the Metropolis-Hastings algorithm. Mastery of intermediate statistics is required for this course, including: distributions, discrete and continuous random variables, transformation of variables (calculus based), bivariate and multivariate normal distribution, maximum likelihood estimation; working knowledge of linear regression and analysis of variance; basic linear algebra: vectors and matrices, linear spaces, matrix multiplication, inverse of a matrix, positive definiteness. Matrix-vector notation for linear regression and ANOVA.
