Quantum Bayesian Networks

Being Bayesian in Java

liang-bookI’ve written software for quantum computers in several computer languages. Most recently, I wrote QuanSuite in Java. I was able to learn Java very quickly, thanks to the wonderful textbook I learned it from. I am referring to Prof. Daniel Liang’s “Introduction to Java Programming, Comprehensive Version”. The book costs about a hundred bucks. But for that you get more than 1300 pages. I like to “read” computer programming books by reading the code examples only. Only if I don’t understand something do I read the text. This technique works better with some books than with others. It works great with Liang’s book. Examples and definitions are clearly highlighted in this book. The book is very well edited. I found very few errors in it, which is remarkable for a 1300 page book. Prof. Liang’s website has some useful resources. I like to use the Eclipse development environment (freeware).

Is there any Bayesian software written in Java? There was a recent blog post about this in Prof. Andrew Gelman’s blog. (Gelman is a noted professor in Statistics and Political Science at Columbia University. He has written several books on Bayesian Statistics).
