Starts on Monday, March 25th and ends on Wednesday, April 24th
The student will be introduced to Bayesian modeling in selected, but relevant, stochastic processes and their applications: Markov chains, Poisson processes, reliability and queues. The use of real examples will be helpful in understanding why and how perform a Bayesian analysis. Students will be asked to analyze real data, from the elicitation of priors and modeling to (numerical) computation of estimates and forecasts and interpretation of findings.
The course largely follows the book Bayesian Analysis of Stochastic Process Models, by Insua, Ruggeri and Wiper, Wiley 2012.
