Bayesian decision analysis supports principled decision making in complex domains. This textbook takes the reader from a formal analysis of simple decision problems to a careful analysis of the sometimes very complex and data rich structures confronted by practitioners. The book contains basic material on subjective probability theory and multi-attribute utility theory, event and decision trees, Bayesian networks, influence diagrams and causal Bayesian networks. The author demonstrates when and how the theory can be successfully applied to a given decision problem, how data can be sampled and expert judgements elicited to support this analysis, and when and how an effective Bayesian decision analysis can be implemented. Evolving from a third-year undergraduate course taught by the author over many years, all of the material in this book will be accessible to a student who has completed introductory courses in probability and mathematical statistics.

Book Description:

Real-world decisions involve numbers, but they also involve people. Bayesian decision analysis gives a principled framework for reconciling the two. This textbook explains how to use statistical theory, psychology and algorithms to guide decision makers so that they can marshal available evidence and defend their actions.

About the Author:

Jim Q. Smith is a Professor of Statistics at the University of Warwick.
