WinBUGS 1.4.3

This site at the MRC Biostatistics Unit Cambridge is primarily concerned with the stand-alone WinBUGS 1.4.3 package.

  • Features a graphical user interface and on-line monitoring and convergence diagnostics.
  • Over 30000 downloads, and a huge number of applications and links.
  • WinBUGS development site includes facilities to add distributions, functions, and includes add-ons for pharmacokinetic modelling, differential equations, and reversible jump MCMC.
  • Can be called from R with R2WinBUGS.
WinBUGS 1.4.3 is a stable version which is recommended for standard use. However many developments are now taking place using OpenBUGS.

Note: The preferred reference for citing WinBUGS in scientific papers is: Lunn, D.J., Thomas, A., Best, N., and Spiegelhalter, D. (2000) WinBUGS -- a Bayesian modelling framework: concepts, structure, and extensibility. Statistics and Computing, 10:325--337.

I said in my test report that they don't work, but actually, clicking on them enough times does eventually cause them to activate.
