Abstract: This paper focuses on utilizing two different Bayesian methods to deal with a variety of toy problems which occur in data analysis. In particular we implement the Variational Bayesian and Nested Sampling methods to tackle the problems of polynomial selection and Gaussian Mixture Models, comparing the algorithms in terms of processing speed and accuracy. In the problems tackled here it is the Variational Bayesian algorithms which are the faster though both results give similar results.
