An Adaptive Sequential Monte Carlo Sampler

Abstract

Sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) methods are not only a popular tool in the analysis of state–space models, but offer an alternative to Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) in situations where Bayesian inference must proceed via simulation. This paper introduces a new SMC method that uses adaptive MCMC kernels for particle dynamics. The proposed algorithm features… (More)
