Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Recent advances in computing-leading to the ability to evaluate increasingly complex models-has resulted in a growing popularity of Bayes and empirical Bayes (EB) methods in statistical practice. Bayes and Empirical Bayes Methods for Data Analysis answers the need for a ready reference that can be read and appreciated by practicing statisticians as well as graduate students. It introduces Bayes and EB methods, demonstrates their usefulness in challenging applied settings, and shows how they can be implemented using modern Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) computational methods. Avoiding philosophical nit-picking, it shows how properly structured Bayes and EB procedures have good frequentist and Bayesian performance both in theory and practice.
The authors have chosen a very practical focus for their work, offering real solution methods to researchers with challenging problems. Beginning with an outline of the decision-theoretic tools needed to compare procedures, the book presents the basics of Bayes and EB approaches. The authors evaluate the frequentist and empirical Bayes performance of these approaches in a variety of settings and identify both virtues and drawbacks. The second half of the book stresses applications. If offers an extensive discussion of modern Bayesian computation methods-including the Gibbs sampler and the Metropolis-Hastings algorithm. It describes data analytic tasks, and offers guidelines on using a variety of special methods and models. The authors conclude with three fully worked case studies of real data sets.
