Abstract

The BACC software provides its users with tools for Bayesian Analysis, Computation, and Communications. A new version of the software, described here, implements these tools as extensions to popular mathematical applications such as GAUSS or MATLAB. The user has available, within the application, special-purpose commands for posterior simulation and related tasks alongside familiar built-in commands for matrix computation, graphics, program flow control, and I/O. Examples illustrate the use of the software within GAUSS. Several models are currently available, including a normal linear model. Developers can extend the software by specifying new models.
