# Bayesian

Bayesian refers to methods in probability and statistics named after Thomas Bayes (c. 1702–61), in particular methods related to statistical inference:

• Bayesian probability or degree-of-belief interpretation of probability, as opposed to frequency or proportion or propensity interpretations
• Bayes' theorem on conditional probability
• Bayesian inference

These methods include:

• Bayes estimator
• Bayes factor
• Bayesian average
• Bayesian spam filtering
• Bayesian game
• Bayesian inference
• Bayesian information criterion
• Bayesian multivariate linear regression
• Bayesian linear regression, a special case
• Bayesian network
• Empirical Bayes method
• Naive Bayes classifier
• Bayesian econometrics
• Bayesian experimental design
• Bayesian inference in phylogeny
• Bayesian search theory
• Bayesian vector autoregression

Bayesian also refers to the application of this probability theory to the functioning of the brain

• Bayesian brain
