Sommario del corso

Oggetto:

Course objectives

The course aims at providing a modern overview of Bayesian nonparametric statistical methods. 

Oggetto:

Results of learning outcomes

Students will learn how to model statistical problems with Bayesian nonparametric tools, study theoretical properties of the involved objects and devise appropriate computational algorithms for their implementation. 

Oggetto:

Program

This course covers the fundamentals of Bayesian nonparametric inference and focuses on the key
probabilistic concepts and stochastic modelling tools at the basis of the most recent advances in the field:
• foundations of Bayesian nonparametric inference: exchangeability and de Finetti's representation
theorem
• the Dirichlet process
• models beyond the Dirichlet process
• mixture models for density estimation and clustering
• random partitions
• dependent priors for partially exchangeable data
• elements of Bayesian asymptotics

16 hours of the course will be taught by Visiting Professor Ramses Mena on Random partitions and dependent processes.

Oggetto:

Course delivery

The course consists mainly of class lectures, with some additional computer lab sessions using R.

Oggetto:

Learning assessment methods

Oral examination and optional paper presentation or discussion of an essay elaborated by the student.
