Related to Bayesian modeling: Bayesian approach, Bayesian analysis, Bayesian updating


 (bā′zē-ən, -zhən)
Of or relating to an approach to probability in which prior results are used to calculate probabilities of certain present or future events.

[After Thomas Bayes (1702-1761), British cleric and mathematician.]


(Statistics) (of a theory) presupposing known a priori probabilities which may be subjectively assessed and which can be revised in the light of experience in accordance with Bayes' theorem. A hypothesis is thus confirmed by an experimental observation which is likely given the hypothesis and unlikely without it. Compare maximum likelihood

JAGS (Just Another Gibbs Sampler) is a program for analysis of Bayesian models using MCMC methods, which was written in C++ by Martyn Plummer with three objectives: (a) to have a cross-platform engine for the BUGS language, (b) to be extensible, allowing users to write their own functions, distributions, and samplers, and (c) to be a platform for experimentation with ideas in Bayesian modeling (see [18]); moreover, it is a free package.
The advantage of our fully Bayesian modeling approach compared to frequentist approaches is that we obtain full inference, not only for the posterior distributions of the regression coefficients but also for the posterior selection probabilities of all the variables.
