In recent years, Bayesian methods have become the most widely used statistical methods for data analysis and modeling. The BUGS software has become the most popular software for Bayesian analysis worldwide. Authored by the team that originally developed this software, Bayesian Analysis using BUGS provides a practical introduction to this program and its use. The text presents complete coverage of all the functionalities of BUGS, including prediction, missing data, model criticism, and prior sensitivity. It also features a large number of worked examples, a wide range of applications from various disciplines, and numerous detailed exercises in every chapter.David Lunn is the author of 'The BUGS Book: A Practical Introduction to Bayesian Analysis (Chapman & Hall/CRC Texts in Statistical Science)', published 2012 under ISBN 9781584888499 and ISBN 1584888490.
