# The Bayesian choice : from decision-theoretic foundations to computational implementation

@inproceedings{Robert2007TheBC, title={The Bayesian choice : from decision-theoretic foundations to computational implementation}, author={Christian P. Robert}, year={2007} }

Winner of the 2004 DeGroot Prize This paperback edition, a reprint of the 2001 edition, is a graduate-level textbook that introduces Bayesian statistics and decision theory. It covers both the basic ideas of statistical theory, and also some of the more modern and advanced topics of Bayesian statistics such as complete class theorems, the Stein effect, Bayesian model choice, hierarchical and empirical Bayes modeling, Monte Carlo integration including Gibbs sampling, and other MCMC techniques…

This tutorial provides an introduction to Bayesian modeling and Markov Chain Monte-Carlo (MCMC) algorithms including the Metropolis-Hastings and Gibbs Sampling algorithms. We discuss some of the…

### An Objective Bayesian Approach to Multistage Hypothesis Testing

- Mathematics
- 2010

Abstract A new Bayesian approach to multistage hypothesis testing is considered. Prior is derived using Jeffreys’ criterion on likelihood associated with the design information. We show that the…

### Computing strategies for complex Bayesian models

- Computer Science
- 2016

A flexible Bayesian method to analyse nonlinear environmental processes, called Dimension Expansion, that essentially consider the observed process as a projection from a higher dimension, where the assumption of stationarity could hold.

### ESTIMATION OF LARGE FAMILIES OF BAYES FACTORS FROM MARKOV CHAIN OUTPUT

- Mathematics, Computer Science
- 2010

This work considers situations in Bayesian analysis where the prior is indexed by a hyperparameter taking on a continuum of values, and develops a method for efficiently computing estimates of the entire family of Bayes factors.

### Lectures on Bayesian nonparametrics: modeling, algorithms and some theory

- Computer Science
- 2015

This is an elementary introduction to fundamental concepts of Bayesian nonparametrics, with an emphasis on the modeling and inference using Dirichlet process mixtures and their extensions, which aims to create inference algorithms and statistical models, whose complexity may grow as data size increases.

### Bayesian model comparison and asymptotics for state-space models

- Mathematics
- 2019

This thesis studies the implementation and properties of a novel criterion for model comparison, with a keen interest in the task of selecting Bayesian state-space models. This criterion, based on…

### Beyond statistical inference: A decision theory for science

- Economics
- 2006

Traditional null hypothesis significance testing does not yield the probability of the null or its alternative and, therefore, cannot logically ground scientific decisions. The decision theory…

### Likelihood-free Model Choice for Simulator-based Models with the Jensen-Shannon Divergence

- Computer ScienceArXiv
- 2022

The asymptotic properties of Jensen–Shannon divergence (JSD) are used to derive a consistent model scoring criterion for the likelihood-free setting called JSD-Razor, which demonstrates the favorable properties of the criterion using both synthetic and real modeling examples.
