The objective of the group is to study inductive
statistics methods, creating an research environment for researchers,
academics and professionals who make from the inductive statistical
tools a instrument of work.
It is widely recognized by the general scientific community
the importance of using statistical methods in the development
of their research. We emphasize the applied statistical methods,
as well as their foundations. We discuss statistical foundations
and their proper application in practical problems.
Interest in foundations of inductive Statistics has been growing
together with the increasing availability of Bayesian methodological
alternatives. Scientists need to deal with the even more difficult
choice of the optimal method to be applied to their problem. The
examination and discussion on foundations prevent the mere ad–hoc
application of Bayesian methods by the scientific community.
