Welcome to the MATH 648 Blog

We are now talking about the elements of Bayesian inference, starting with the problem of learning about a population proportion. In class, I will talk about ideas and methods, and I will use this blog to describe computational aspects using the R language.

In the computer lab last week, I gave a brief introduction to the R language, describing manipulations of vectors and matrices. Also, I described how to load the LearnBayes package and illustrated the use of several functions for learning about a population proportion.
