Introduction to Bayesian modeling with (py)stan

Introduction to Bayesian modeling with (py)stan

Course Description

The aim of the course is to present the cornerstones of Bayesian modeling. It will (try to) answer the questions: – “What is so special about the Bayesian viewpoint?” – “Is there any way to profit from its finesses without going through all that mathematical hell?” We will try to construct convenient statistical models for selected toy and real-world examples, and estimate their parameters using (py)stan.

Course tools

  • python
  • scipy, numpy , pandas, pystan, arviz


  • Basics of probability theory and statistics Basics of python and numpy
Level of complexity of course Basics
