If you know how to program, you're ready to tackle Bayesian statistics. With this book, you'll learn how to solve statistical problems with Python code instead of mathematical formulas, using discrete probability distributions rather than continuous mathematics. Once you get the math out of the way, the Bayesian fundamentals will become clearer and you'll begin to apply these techniques to real-world problems.

Bayesian statistical methods are becoming more common and more important, but not many resources are available to help beginners. Based on undergraduate classes taught by author Allen Downey, this book's computational approach helps you get a solid start.

  • Use your programming skills to learn and understand Bayesian statistics
  • Work with problems involving estimation, prediction, decision analysis, evidence, and Bayesian hypothesis testing
  • Get started with simple examples, using coins, dice, and a bowl of cookies
  • Learn computational methods for solving real-world problems



貝葉斯統計方法變得越來越常見和重要,但沒有太多資源可供初學者使用。根據作者Allen Downey所教授的本科課程,這本書的計算方法將幫助你有一個堅實的開始。

  • 利用你的程式設計技能學習和理解貝葉斯統計

  • 處理涉及估計、預測、決策分析、證據和貝葉斯假設檢驗的問題

  • 從簡單的例子入手,使用硬幣、骰子和一碗餅乾

  • 學習解決實際問題的計算方法
