Language Manual

The modeling language manual contains a guide to programming in Stan with example models, a reference manual for the language itself, and a reference guide to the built-in special functions and probability functions. Stan’s modeling language is portable across all interfaces.

Examples

The quick start guides for each interface contain some example models that illustrate how to run Stan.

The modeling language manual contains other examples of model to illustrate coding techniques in Stan.

A larger set of example models translating the BUGS examples (Volumes 1 through 3) and the models from several Bayesian textbooks are also available:

Case Studies

There are a number of longer, tutorial case studies for particular applications, models, and methodologies. These can be found on their own page:
