Another handbook chapter

As I have received over the past semester half a dozen requests for contributing chapters in different handbooks, I wrote several rather similar introductions to Bayesian statistics and/or to computational statistics. Here is one for an Handbook of Statistical Systems Biology edited by D. Balding, M. Stumpf, and M. Girolami, to be published by Wiley. It is mostly inspired from the second chapter of Bayesian Core so it is not particularly novel. If I find some extra time within the coming months, I will also include a section on nonparametric Bayes… Before, I also have to write a revised edition to my chapter Bayesian Computational Methods in the Handbook of Computational Statistics (selling at an outrageous price, like most handbooks!), edited by J. Gentle, W. Härdle and Y. Mori.
