Title: What is new in the 2nd edition
Post by: bill.raynor on April 25, 2013, 19:57:04
I see that Springer is advertising a 2nd edition of the book. The downloadable front matter does not have a "What's New" or 2nd edition preface. Could you post some information as to what is new in the book? (I already have the first edition)

Compared to the first edition, this second edition of the book contains additional material: Sections 6.3.3 and 6.3.4 elaborate on model construction, Section 8.3 describes search and score-based structure learning, Section 8.4 presents a worked example on structure learning, Section 10.3 describes two-way parameter sensitivity analysis, Section 10.4 describes parameter tuning, and an appendix provides a quick reference to model construction with lists of recommendations and pitfalls for the model builder. Finally, lists of examples, figures, and tables have been added
