Model Based Inference in the Life Sciences : A Primer on Evidence, Paperback / softback Book

Model Based Inference in the Life Sciences : A Primer on Evidence Paperback / softback


This textbook introduces a science philosophy called "information theoretic" based on Kullback-Leibler information theory.

It focuses on a science philosophy based on "multiple working hypotheses" and statistical models to represent them.

The text is written for people new to the information-theoretic approaches to statistical inference, whether graduate students, post-docs, or professionals.

Readers are however expected to have a background in general statistical principles, regression analysis, and some exposure to likelihood methods.

This is not an elementary text as it assumes reasonable competence in modeling and parameter estimation.
