Let X1, . . . ,Xk and Y 1, . . . , Y m be jointly independent copies of random variables X and Y , respectively. For a fixed total number n of random variables, we aim at maximising M(k,m) := Emax{X1, . . . ,Xk, Y 1, . . . , Y m} in k = n − m ≥ 0, which corresponds to maximising the expected lifetime of an n-component parallel system whose components can be(More)
Markov-chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulation is one of the most versatile and widely-used tools applied in statistical physics. In order for MCMC algorithms to be useful however, it is crucial that they converge rapidly to stationarity. A major breakthrough in the development of efficient MCMC algorithms for statistical-mechanical spin models was the(More)
