We propose a method for rejection sampling from any univariate log‐concave probability density function. The method is adaptive: As sampling proceeds, the rejection envelope and the squeezing… (More)

Bayesian random effects models may be fitted using Gibbs sampling, but the Gibbs sampler can be slow mixing due to what might be regarded as lack of model identifiability. This slow mixing… (More)
