Bayesian simulation of a biased coin (PDF)

This article provides an introduction to the Bayesian updating process using the example of a biased coin. It shows how the distribution narrows, and likelihood increases as more data is gathered. It is intended to sharpen your understanding of how to interpret the PDF (probability density function). A Python 3 example is given, which should help readers gain intuitions into the mechanics of the process.
