Bayesian estimation of state-space models using the Metropolis-Hastings algorithm within Gibbs sampling

During this paper, an try is made to teach a common option to nonlinear and/or non-Gaussian state-space modeling in a Bayesian framework, which corresponds to an extension of Carlin et al. (J. Amer. Statist. Assoc. 87(418} (1992) 493-500) and Carter and Kohn (Biometrika 81(3} (1994) 541-553; Biometrika 83(3) (1996) 589-601).

Statistical Analysis of Spherical Data

This can be the 1st accomplished, but basically offered, account of statistical equipment for analysing round facts. The research of information, within the kind of instructions in house or of positions of issues on a round floor, is needed in lots of contexts within the earth sciences, astrophysics and different fields, but the method required is disseminated in the course of the literature.

The choice of the splitter element in the Quicksort algorithm is done very simply: at random. We just choose, using our favorite random number generator, one of the entries of the given subarray, let’s call it T , and declare it to be the splitter. To repeat the parenthetical comment above, T is the value of the array entry that was chosen, not its position in the array. Once the value is selected, the position will be what it has to be, namely to the right of all smaller entries, and to the left of all larger entries.

Attributed to Nico Lomuto by Jon Bentley, CACM 27 (April 1984). {split} We will now prove the correctness of split. 1. Procedure split correctly splits the array x around the chosen value T . Proof: We claim that as the loop in lines 7 and 8 is repeatedly executed for j := lef t + 1 to right, the following three assertions will always be true just after each execution of lines 7, 8: (a) x[lef t] = T and (b) x[r] < T for all lef t < r ≤ i and (c) x[r] ≥ T for all i < r ≤ j Fig. 1 illustrates the claim.

For a fast and easy way to do this see A. Nijenhuis and H. S. Wilf, Combinatorial Algorithms, 2nd ed. (New York: Academic Press, 1978), chap. 6. 3 Recursive graph algorithms 4. Consider the array x = {2, 4, 1, 10, 5, 3, 9, 7, 8, 6} with lef t = 1 and right = 10. Suppose that the procedure split is called, and suppose the random integer L in step 1 happens to be 5. Carry out the complete split algorithm (not on a computer; use pencil and paper). Particularly, record the condition of the array x after each value of j is processed in the f or j = .
