**Bayesian Computational Methods**

by Christian P. Robert

**Publisher**: arXiv 2010**Number of pages**: 59

**Description**:

We will first present the most standard computational challenges met in Bayesian Statistics, focusing primarily on mixture estimation and on model choice issues, and then relate these problems with computational solutions.
