Just Another Gibbs Sampler
JAGS is Just Another Gibbs Sampler – a program for analysis of Bayesian hierarchical models using Markov Chain Monte Carlo MCMC simulation.
The functionality of JAGS is based on the BUGS program created by the MRC Biostatistics Unit http//www.mrc-bsu.cam.ac.uk/. There is a short manual that describes the differences between JAGS and BUGS.
Some of the BUGS examples have been modified to run with JAGS, and have been turned into a test suite.
