Group Metropolis Sampling

Gustau Camps-Valls, Victor Elvira, Luca Martino
2018 Zenodo  
As an example, we present the Group Metropolis Sampling (GMS) algorithm that generates a Markov chain of sets of weighted samples.  ...  Unlike in the IMH scheme, GMS produces a sequence of sets of weighted samples. The Group Metropolis Sampling (GMS) is shown in Table II .  ...

The Short-Cut Metropolis Method [article]

Radford M. Neal
2005 arXiv   pre-print
Unlike other adaptive Metropolis schemes, this method converges to the correct distribution in the same fashion as the standard Metropolis method.  ...  This allows one to effectively adapt the scale of the Metropolis proposal distribution, by performing several such "short-cut" Metropolis sequences with varying proposal stepsizes.  ...  Alternatively, one can look at the sample variance and sample autocorrelation function of block averages, over the K states in each short-cut Metropolis update, or over longer blocks consisting of several  ...

The preferred directional bias of the mover households in Kaduna metropolis typifies the Schelling's model of residential tipping which ultimately resulted in residential segregation.  ...  Also, residential mobility, amongst other factors led to the expansion of the metropolis, strengthen family ties and above all led to the socio-spatial sorting of the residents.  ...  The sample size was used because the households' number in the metropolis was fairly large; hence, the sample size of 0.3 percent gave a very large number of households which when carefully selected across  ...
