Stan User’s Guide

Version 2.35

This is the official user’s guide for Stan. It provides example models and programming techniques for coding statistical models in Stan.

We recommend working through this guide using the textbooks Bayesian Data Analysis and Statistical Rethinking: A Bayesian Course with Examples in R and Stan as references on the concepts, and using the Stan Reference Manual when necessary to clarify programming issues.
