Summary 1. Many recent statistical applications involve inference under complex models,
where it is computationally prohibitive to calculate likelihoods but possible to simulate data.
Approximate Bayesian computation (ABC) is devoted to these complex models because it
bypasses the evaluation of the likelihood function by comparing observed and simulated
data.
