Improving Bayesian radiological profiling of waste drums using Dirichlet priors, Gaussian process priors, and hierarchical modeling
We present three methodological improvements of the “SCK CEN approach" for Bayesian inference of the radionuclide inventory in radioactive waste drums, from radiological measurements. First we resort

Stochastic approach for radionuclides quantification
TLDR
The French Commissariat a l’Energie Atomique (CEA) is developing a new methodology to quantify nuclear materials in waste packages and waste drums without operator adjustment and internal package configuration knowledge by combining a global stochastic approach, a Bayesian approach, and Markov Chains Monte Carlo algorithms.
Minimum detectable activity, systematic uncertainties, and the ISO 11929 standard
TLDR
A straightforward phenomenological statistical model of the MDA is developed that treats systematic uncertainties explicitly, and predictions from this model are compared with results of the ISO 11929 formulation as well as the traditional Currie approach.
Inference from Iterative Simulation Using Multiple Sequences
TLDR
The focus is on applied inference for Bayesian posterior distributions in real problems, which often tend toward normal- ity after transformations and marginalization, and the results are derived as normal-theory approximations to exact Bayesian inference, conditional on the observed simulations.
Handbook of Markov Chain Monte Carlo
TLDR
A Markov chain Monte Carlo based analysis of a multilevel model for functional MRI data and its applications in environmental epidemiology, educational research, and fisheries science are studied.
MCMC Using Hamiltonian Dynamics
Hamiltonian dynamics can be used to produce distant proposals for the Metropolis algorithm, thereby avoiding the slow exploration of the state space that results from the diffusive behaviour of

TLDR
A number of alternative software packages for custom statistical modelling have been introduced, including JAGS, Stan, and NIMBLE, in which users typically write out models in a domain-specific language, which is then compiled into computational code.
