Subject: [FRIAM] Learning about Bayesian Statistics


At Friday's church service Nick asked about how one might learn the basics of Bayesian statistics. I said I would think about it, and so here are my conclusions.


For historical and philosophical background: Read The Emergence of Probability by Ian Hacking


For a systematic course: Take Coursera, Bayesian Statistics, a course from Duke University with a 7-day free trial. 


Also of course there are several reasonable texts on Bayesian Statistics.

My art theme: Dynamic exposition of the tension between matrix order and luminous chaos.
