The basic documentation available is as follows.
- The [B/D] reference manual. About 200 pages.
- The technical report Bayes linear methods I - Adjusting beliefs: Concepts
and properties, written by Michael Goldstein.
This contains an introduction to the theory
of Bayes linear methodology, and defines
the notation used. About 20 pages.
- The technical report Bayes linear methods II - An example with an
introduction to [B/D], written by David Wooff.
This contains a tutorial introduction to Bayes
linear methods using an example, and then
demonstrates how we use [B/D] for the
same example. About 40 pages.
- The technical report Bayes linear methods III - Bayes linear
influence diagrams and Exchangeability, written by
David Wooff and
This contains an introduction to the graphical portrayal of features of the
linear analysis, using Bayes linear influence diagrams constructed by [B/D],
and an introduction to using [B/D] to exploit exchangeability.
About 20 pages.
