Flexible Bayesian Regression Modeling is a step-by-step guide to the Bayesian revolution in regression modeling, for use in advanced econometric and statistical analysis where datasets are characterized by complexity, multiplicity, and large sample sizes, necessitating the need for considerable flexibility in modeling techniques. It reviews three forms of flexibility: methods which provide flexibility in their error distribution; methods which model non-central parts of the distribution (such as quantile regression); and finally models that allow the mean function to be flexible (such as spline models). Each chapter discusses the key aspects of fitting a regression model. R programs accompany the methods. This book is particularly relevant to non-specialist practitioners with intermediate mathematical training seeking to apply Bayesian approaches in economics, biology, finance, engineering and medicine. Introduces powerful new nonparametric Bayesian regression techniques to classically trained practitioners Focuses on approaches offering both superior power and methodological flexibility Supplemented with instructive and relevant R programs within the text Covers linear regression, nonlinear regression and quantile regression techniques Provides diverse disciplinary case studies for correlation and optimization problems drawn from Bayesian analysis ‘in the wild’

Bayesian analysis has developed rapidly in applications in the last two decades and research in Bayesian methods remains dynamic and fast-growing. Dramatic advances in modelling concepts and computational technologies now enable routine application of Bayesian analysis using increasingly realistic stochastic models, and this drives the adoption of Bayesian approaches in many areas of science, technology, commerce, and industry. This Handbook explores contemporary Bayesian analysis across a variety of application areas. Chapters written by leading exponents of applied Bayesian analysis showcase the scientific ease and natural application of Bayesian modelling, and present solutions to real, engaging, societally important and demanding problems. The chapters are grouped into five general areas: Biomedical & Health Sciences; Industry, Economics & Finance; Environment & Ecology; Policy, Political & Social Sciences; and Natural & Engineering Sciences, and Appendix material in each touches on key concepts, models, and techniques of the chapter that are also of broader pedagogic and applied interest.

Nonlinear Bayesian modelling is a relatively new field, but one that has seen a recent explosion of interest. Nonlinear models offer more flexibility than those with linear assumptions, and their implementation has now become much easier due to increases in computational power. Bayesian methods allow for the incorporation of prior information, allowing the user to make coherent inference. Bayesian Methods for Nonlinear Classification and Regression is the first book to bring together, in a consistent statistical framework, the ideas of nonlinear modelling and Bayesian methods. * Focuses on the problems of classification and regression using flexible, data-driven approaches. * Demonstrates how Bayesian ideas can be used to improve existing statistical methods. * Includes coverage of Bayesian additive models, decision trees, nearest-neighbour, wavelets, regression splines, and neural networks. * Emphasis is placed on sound implementation of nonlinear models. * Discusses medical, spatial, and economic applications. * Includes problems at the end of most of the chapters. * Supported by a web site featuring implementation code and data sets. Primarily of interest to researchers of nonlinear statistical modelling, the book will also be suitable for graduate students of statistics. The book will benefit researchers involved inregression and classification modelling from electrical engineering, economics, machine learning and computer science.

Offering a detailed and careful explanation of the methods, this book delineates Bayesian non parametric techniques to be used in health care and the statistical evaluation of diagnostic tests to determine accuracy before mass use in practice. Unique to these methods is the incorporation of prior information and elimination of subjective beliefs and asymptotic results. It includes examples such as ROC curves and ROC surfaces estimation, modeling of multivariate diagnostic data, absence of a perfect test, ROC regression methodology, and sample size determination.

Making statistical modeling and inference more accessible to ecologists and related scientists, Introduction to Hierarchical Bayesian Modeling for Ecological Data gives readers a flexible and effective framework to learn about complex ecological processes from various sources of data. It also helps readers get started on building their own statistical models. The text begins with simple models that progressively become more complex and realistic through explanatory covariates and intermediate hidden states variables. When fitting the models to data, the authors gradually present the concepts and techniques of the Bayesian paradigm from a practical point of view using real case studies. They emphasize how hierarchical Bayesian modeling supports multidimensional models involving complex interactions between parameters and latent variables. Data sets, exercises, and R and WinBUGS codes are available on the authors’ website. This book shows how Bayesian statistical modeling provides an intuitive way to organize data, test ideas, investigate competing hypotheses, and assess degrees of confidence of predictions. It also illustrates how conditional reasoning can dismantle a complex reality into more understandable pieces. As conditional reasoning is intimately linked with Bayesian thinking, considering hierarchical models within the Bayesian setting offers a unified and coherent framework for modeling, estimation, and prediction.

This book addresses the applications of extensively used regression models under a Bayesian framework. It emphasizes efficient Bayesian inference through integrated nested Laplace approximations (INLA) and real data analysis using R. The INLA method directly computes very accurate approximations to the posterior marginal distributions and is a promising alternative to Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms, which come with a range of issues that impede practical use of Bayesian models.

Application of Gaussian Process Priors on Bayesian Regression

This dissertation aims at introducing Gaussian process priors on the regression to capture features of dataset more adequately. Three different types of problems occur often in the regression. 1) For the dataset with missing covariates in the semiparametric regression, we utilize Gaussian process priors on the nonparametric component of the regression function to perform imputations of missing covariates. For the Bayesian inference of parameters, we specify objective priors on the Gaussian process parameters.Posteriorpropriety of the model under the objective priors is also demonstrated. 2) For modeling binary and ordinal data, we proposed a flexible nonparametric regression model that combines flexible power link function with a Gaussian process prior on the latent regression function. We develop an efficient sampling algorithm for posterior inference and prove the posterior consistency of the proposed model. 3) In the high dimensional dataset, the estimation of regression coefficients especially when the covariates are highly multicollinear is very challenging. Therefore, we develop a model by using structured spike an slab prior on regression coefficients. Prior information of similarity between covariates can be encoded into the covariance structure of Gaussian process which can be used to induce sparsity. Hyperparameters of the Gaussian process can be used to control different sparsity pattern. The superiority of the proposed model is demonstrated using various simulation studies and real data examples.
