Bhattacharya (2021b) has introduced a novel methodology for generating iid realizations from any target distribution on the Euclidean space, irrespective of dimensionality. In this article, our purpose is two-fold. We first extend the method for obtaining iid realizations from general multimodal distributions, and illustrate with a mixture of two 50-dimensional normal distributions. Then we extend the iid sampling method for fixed-dimensional distributions to variable-dimensional situations and… Expand

Exact sampling with coupled Markov chains and applications to statistical mechanics
This work describes a simple variant of the Markov chain method that determines on its own when to stop, and that outputs samples in exact accordance with the desired distribution, and can sample from the Gibbs distributions associated with various statistical mechanics models. Expand
