Statistical Rethinking with Python and PyMC3
Statistical Rethinking is an incredible good introductory book to Bayesian Statistics, its follows a Jaynesian and practical approach with very good examples and clear explanations.
In this repository we ported the codes (originally in R and Stan) in the book to PyMC3. We are trying to keep the examples as close as possible to those in the book, while at the same time trying to express them in the most Pythonic and PyMC3onic way we can.
All contributions are welcome!
Feel free to send PR to fix errors, improve the code or made comments that could help the user of this repository and readers of the book.
