Bayesian Statistics: Principles, Models, and Applications

New York: Wiley, c1989. Third printing. pp 237, index. Fine in fine jacket. 'Uniting the essential topics in one source, this introduction to Bayesian statistics is the first broadly based compendium of its theory and practice. It traces the roots of Bayesian statistics from the period before Bayes up to the present, covering many Bayesian computer programs. Discusses topics from the most fundamental principles to actual applications and case studies. Featuring the original essay by Bayes -- reproduced in its entirety with a complete biographical sketch -- it demonstrates how the concept has evolved over the years via numerous illustrations, such as the results of an experiment at the Rand Corporation that assessed the probability of nuclear war in the 1980s, and the results of a Bayesian analysis of papers of disputed authorship.''; Octavo 0471637297
