Sequential Monte Carlo in Action

  • Jun S. Liu
Part of the Springer Series in Statistics book series (SSS)


The previous chapter outlines a general Monte Carlo framework based on the sequential buildup strategy. Several essential elements are (a) the choice of the trial densities, (b) the resampling method, (c) the marginalization strategy, and (d) the rejection control. This chapter will illustrate how these generic strategies are applied to various application problems.
