Anthony N. Pettitt mostly deals with Statistics, Algorithm, Markov chain Monte Carlo, Mathematical optimization and Particle filter. His study looks at the relationship between Statistics and fields such as Econometrics, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. He works mostly in the field of Markov chain Monte Carlo, limiting it down to concerns involving Posterior probability and, occasionally, Estimation theory.

His Mathematical optimization research includes elements of Bayes factor, Bayesian statistics, Markov model, Variable-order Bayesian network and Hidden Markov model. His work carried out in the field of Markov model brings together such families of science as Marginal likelihood, Bayes' theorem and Macroparasite. Anthony N. Pettitt interconnects Sampling, Monte Carlo method and Model selection in the investigation of issues within Bayesian probability.
