Python interface to JAGS library for Bayesian data analysis.
PyJAGS: The Python Interface to JAGS
PyJAGS provides a Python interface to JAGS, a program for analysis of Bayesian hierarchical models using Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulation.
PyJAGS adds the following features on top of JAGS:
- Multicore support for parallel simulation of multiple Markov chains (See Jupyter Notebook Advanced Functionality
- Saving sample MCMC chains to and restoring from HDF5 files
- Functionality to merge samples along iterations or across chains so that sampling can be resumed in consecutive chunks until convergence criteria are satisfied
- Connectivity to the Bayesian analysis and visualization package Arviz
PyJAGS works on MacOS and Linux. Windows is not currently supported.
A working JAGS installation is required.
