Målgrupp

Optional course.

Master's Programme in Mathematics and Statistics is responsible for the course.

The course belongs to the Statistics module.

Students in Master's programmes of Mathematics and Statistics, Life Science Informatics and Data Science

The course is available to students from other degree programmes.

Tidigare studier eller kunskaper

Bachelor studies in mathematics and statistics or equivalent knowledge.

It is assumed that you have taken at least one of the following courses:

MAT22005 Bayesian inference

DATA11006 Statistical Data Science

LSI35002 Bayesian data analysis

or a course covering basics in Bayesian inference.

Kunskapsmål

The course covers some foundations of Bayesian statistics and its theoretical links to decision theory. After the course you will understand the justification and axiomatic construction for probability as a measure of subjective uncertainty and how this leads to Bayes theorem. You will also be introduced to properties of Bayesian inference in the limit of large data and to De'Finetti's Theorem and their basic consequences and interpretations. After the course you will understand what are model's marginal likelihood and Bayes factors, posterior predictive model comparison and validation, decision analysis and experimental design. You will also be able to apply these techniques to practical data analysis tasks.

Timing

After the Bachelor studies and Bayesian Inference course 4th period

After the Bachelor studies and Bayesian Inference course in the 4th period. The course is lectured in every even year (2018, 2020, ...). In odd years, the course is available for self study.
