Master Bayesian Inference through Practical Examples and Computation–Without Advanced Mathematical Analysis

Bayesian methods of inference are deeply natural and extremely powerful. However, most discussions of Bayesian inference rely on intensely complex mathematical analyses and artificial examples, making it inaccessible to anyone without a strong mathematical background. Now, though, Cameron Davidson-Pilon introduces Bayesian inference from a computational perspective, bridging theory to practice–freeing you to get results using computing power.

This book brings together comprehensive best practices for building software systems that exhibit superior operational security, and for considering security early and throughout the full lifecycles of both system development and acquisition. Pioneering software assurance experts Nancy R. Mead and Dr. Carol Woody present the latest practical knowledge and case studies, demonstrating strategies and techniques that have been repeatedly proven to reduce operational problems and the need for software patching. Using these methods, any software practitioner or manager can make system and software engineering decisions that are far more likely to achieve appropriate operational results.

Drawing on their pioneering work at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and Carnegie Mellon University, the authors introduce seven core principles of software assurance, and demonstrate how to apply them through all four key areas of cybersecurity engineering:
