  title={On particle Gibbs sampling},
  author={Nicolas Chopin and Sumeetpal S. Singh},
The particle Gibbs sampler is a Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm to sample from the full posterior distribution of a state-space model. It does so by executing Gibbs sampling steps on an extended target distribution defined on the space of the auxiliary variables generated by an interacting particle system. This paper makes the following contributions to the theoretical study of this algorithm. Firstly, we present a coupling construction between two particle Gibbs updates from… CONTINUE READING
