Doing Bayesian Data Analysis - Python/PyMC3

This repository contains Python/PyMC3 code for a selection of models and figures from the book 'Doing Bayesian Data Analysis: A Tutorial with R, JAGS, and Stan', Second Edition, by John Kruschke (2015). The datasets used in this repository have been retrieved from the book's website. Note that, in its current form, this repository is not a standalone tutorial and that you probably should have a copy of the book to follow along. Suggestions for improvement and help with unsolved issues are welcome!

Note that the code is in Jupyter Notebook format and requires modification to use with other datasets.

Some of the general concepts from the book are discussed in papers by Kruschke & Liddell. See references below.

2018-08-16 (ongoing):
Updating the notebooks with PyMC3 v3.5 and general code clean-up. Inserting plots of the PyMC models in plate notation (v3.5 feature). Fixing some deprecation warnings.

The repository below contains python code for the first edition of the book. The code in that repository is a much more direct implementation of the R/JAGS code from the book than you will find here.
