Does anyone have any good reference for beginners in WinBUGS about modeling?
I already have some familiarity with R, but I had never used R2WinBUGS before. I'm interested in making beta, beta rectangular, and simplex regression models.
Although I have found some ready-made templates codes, it is very difficult without some knowledge to understand how they work and make any kind of adaptation.
I also ask if there are already packages in the R for diagnostics of models made from BUGS, such as residual analysis.
EDIT: Can anyone explain to me the difference between WinBUGS and JAGS. I made some research and found it in some R2jags description
"model.file file containing the model written in BUGS code"
So the model in JAGS is writted in BUGS?
