Illustration of Bayesian inference in normal data models using Gibbs sampling

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The use of the Gibbs sampler as a method for calculating Bayesian marginal posterior and predictive densities is reviewed and illustrated with a range of normal data models, including variance components, unordered and ordered means, hierarchical growth curves, and missing data in a crossover trial. In all cases the approach is straightforward to specify distributionally and to implement computationally, with output readily adapted for required inference summaries. © 1990 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
