no u-turn

Day 12: Stan

A colleague comes in with a statistics question. It doesn’t seem particularly unreasonable, and after a bit of thought it’s not too hard to come up with a model that would make sense for the problem. The only difficulty is that it’s non standard. After a little more thought, it seems like it might be possible to come up with a variation of the model that falls within the GLM (or whatever), and so maybe there’s a way of solving the problem that way.
