The manual provides information for those wishing to use NIMBLE to work with their own models as well as algorithm developers wishing to write algorithms using NIMBLE.
Please see our Github repository of training materials for materials from our various NIMBLE training workshops, including workshops developed for statisticans and workshops developed for ecologists.
- Examples of spatial and spatio-temporal models (specifically for disease mapping) provided by Andrew Lawson.
- A blog post on converting from JAGS or BUGS to NIMBLE..
- Using NIMBLE for the examples in the book Applied Hierarchical Modeling in Ecology..
The following paper describes the motivation and design of NIMBLE:
