Researchers in many branches of science are increasingly coming into contact with Bayesian statistics or Bayesian probability theory. This book provides a clear exposition of the underlying concepts with large numbers of worked examples and problem sets. It also discusses numerical techniques for implementing the Bayesian calculations, including Markov Chain Monte-Carlo integration and linear and nonlinear least-squares analysis seen from a Bayesian perspective.
