Stan implementation


This documentation is currently in-development. Please visit again soon, this section is actively updated.

Stan is a powerful probabilistic programming language and high-performance probabilistic computation library, with support for:

  • Robust and mature probabilistic programming language constructs.
  • High-performance mathematical computation libraries.
  • Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) optimisation methods.
  • Bayesian inference.
  • Variational inference.
  • Interfaces to data and analysis languages (R, Python, shell, MATLAB, Julia, Stata).
