Welcome!

This is the top-level Wiki for the Stan project as well as the Wiki for the stan-dev/stan repository. Most of the content is aimed at developers, though some may be of interest to users. If you're not a Stan developer or thinking of becoming one, you're probably looking for:

There are a few remaining user-facing Wiki pages that haven't been moved to the web site:

GitHub Repositories and Submodule Relationships

The development for the math library, language and algorithms, and interfaces are arranged into the following repositories with arrows indicating submodule inclusions.

math <- stan <- pystan
             <- rstan   <- rstanarm
             <- cmdstan <- statastan
                        <- matlabstan
                        <- stan.jl
                        <- MathematicaStan

Currently, the stan repo includes the language, the algorithms, and the service API for the interfaces. There are additional repos for tools such as the emacs mode, R plotting, R Shiny interface, web pages, etc.
