What is Stan?

Stan is an probabilistic programming language. Probabilistic programming languages are languages designed to describe probabilistic models as well as perform the necessary inferential computation.

Carpenter, Bob, et al. "Stan: A probabilistic programming language" in Journal of Statistical Software (2017). DOI 10.18637/jss.v076.i01

Examples Notebooks

  1. Bernoulli (notebook | model)
  2. Linear Regression (notebook | model)
  3. Seven Scientists (notebook | model)
