It is a great vehicle for learning about Bayes nets and about Netica's capability.

Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B,71(2):319{392, 2009. It is surprisingly difficult to get it all correct so that the model, in INLA and in your MCMC code is exactly the same.

Approximate Bayesian inference for latent Gaussian models using inte-grated nested Laplace approximations (with discussion). In order to make spatial statistics computationally feasible, we need to forget about the covariance function Daniel Simpson , Finn Lindgren and Håvard Rue Environmetrics 2012; 23: 65–74Think continuous: Markovian Gaussian models in spatial statistics Daniel Simpson, Finn Lindgren, and Håvard Rue Spatial Statistics 1 (2012) 16–29Although it might happen you have run into one of those cases where INLA is know to fail, it is far more likely it is "the devil is in the details'-effect.

Versions of Netica API are available for most popular platforms, including Microsoft Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP/Vista, Linux, Sun Sparc, Mac (68000, PPC: OS 6 to 9 & OS-X), Silicon Graphics and DOS.

Bayes' Theorem The particular formula from Bayesian probability we are going to use is called Bayes' Theorem, sometimes called Bayes' formula or Bayes' rule. Maybe you understand it in theory, but every time you try to apply it in practice you get mixed up trying to remember the difference between belongs in the numerator or the denominator.Why does a mathematical concept generate this strange enthusiasm in its students? While there are a few existing online explanations of Bayes' Theorem, my experience with trying to introduce people to Bayesian reasoning is that the existing online explanations are too abstract.Bayesian reasoning is apparently one of those things which, like quantum mechanics or the Wason Selection Test, is inherently difficult for humans to grasp with our built-in mental faculties. Here you will find an attempt to offer an explanation of Bayesian reasoning - an excruciatingly gentle introduction that invokes all the human ways of grasping numbers, from natural frequencies to spatial visualization.The intent is to convey, not abstract rules for manipulating numbers, but what the numbers mean, and why the rules are what they are (and cannot possibly be anything else).In this way, you are comparing the results obtained from the same model.
