Think Bayes: Bayesian Statistics in Python
Monday, December 16th, 2013
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.
