"... Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) is a popular class of algorithms to sample from a complex distribution. A key issue in the design of MCMC algorithms is to improve the proposal mechanism and the mixing behaviour. This has led some authors to propose the use of a population of MCMC chains, while other ..."

"... We investigate the use of Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods to attack classical ciphers. MCMC has previously been used to break simple substitution ciphers. Here, we extend this approach to transposition ciphers and to substitutionplustransposition ciphers. Our algorithms run quickly and per ..."

"... Stochastic search algorithms inspired by physical and biological systems are applied to the problem of learning directed graphical probability models in the presence of missing observations and hidden variables. For this class of problems, deterministic search algorithms tend to halt at local optima ..."

We develop efficient Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms to perform Bayesian inference in this context. Our socalled Particle MCMC (PMCMC) algorithms rely on ..."

"... A critical issue for users of Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods in applications is how to determine when it is safe to stop sampling and use the samples to estimate characteristics of the distribution of interest. Research into methods of computing theoretical convergence bounds holds promise ..."

Markov Chain Monte Carlo Estimation of

From a Bayesian perspective, the time series is a vector sample picked at random from a probability dens ..."

Using illustrative chaotic systems with largeamplitude dynamical and measurement noise, we show here that it is feasible to use the Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) technique to generate the Bayesian conditional probabilities. The resulting parameter estimates are markedly superior to those based
