Computing Nonparametric Hierarchical Models

  title={Computing Nonparametric Hierarchical Models},
  author={Michael D. Escobar and Mike West},
Bayesian models involving Dirichlet process mixtures are at the heart of the modern nonparametric Bayesian movement. Much of the rapid development of these models in the last decade has been a direct result of advances in simulation-based computational methods. Some of the very early work in this area, circa 1988-1991, focused on the use of such… CONTINUE READING
