On the ordering of some nonreversible Markov chain and Markov process Monte Carlo methods

Presented by: 
Christophe Andrieu University of Bristol
Wednesday 5th July 2017 - 11:45 to 12:30
INI Seminar Room 1
We will show how one can derive simple criteria to order the asymptotic variance of a broad class of Monte Carlo algorithms based on Markov chains or processes. Interestingly these results mirror existing results for algorithms based on reversible processes.

Joint work with Sam Livingstone.
