Part of the Springer Series in Statistics book series (SSS)


Topics in this chapter include the covariance analysis of iterative conditional sampling; the comparison of Metropolis algorithms based on Peskun’s theorem; the eigen-analysis of the independence sampler; perfect simulation, convergence diagnostics, and a theory for dynamic weighting. The interested reader is encouraged to read the related literature for more detailed analyses.
