Think Bayes: Bayesian Statistics in Python

Monday, December 16th, 2013

There's a free download available of "Think Bayes – Bayesian Statistics in Python" over at it-ebooks.info. A small excerpt from the book:

The premise of this book, and the other books in the Think X series, is that if you know
how to program, you can use that skill to learn other topics.

Most books on Bayesian statistics use mathematical notation and present ideas in terms
of mathematical concepts like calculus. This book uses Python code instead of math,
and discrete approximations instead of continuous mathematics. As a result, what
would be an integral in a math book becomes a summation, and most operations on
probability distributions are simple loops.
