JAGS

Software Code: 

JAGS

Version: 
4.2.0
Description: 

JAGS is Just Another Gibbs Sampler.  It is a program for analysis of Bayesian hierarchical models using Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulation  not wholly unlike BUGS.  JAGS was written with three aims in mind:

  • To have a cross-platform engine for the BUGS language
  • To be extensible, allowing users to write their own functions, distributions and samplers.
  • To be a plaftorm for experimentation with ideas in Bayesian modelling
