Markov Chain Monte Carlo
Delivered by Jacob Jackson on Wednesday October 4, 2017
The talk will introduce Markov chain Monte Carlo methods as a means of sampling from a distribution. The Metropolis-Hastings algorithm will be discussed as well as applications of Markov chain Monte Carlo for Bayesian inference and optimization.
Will expect familiarity with basic probability theory, especially conditional probability.
