Convergence Analysis of MCMC Algorithms for Bayesian Multivariate Linear Regression with Non‐Gaussian Errors
When Gaussian errors are inappropriate in a multivariate linear regression setting, it is often assumed that the errors are iid from a distribution that is a scale mixture of multivariate normals.
Uncertainty Quantification for Modern High-Dimensional Regression via Scalable Bayesian Methods
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the proposed class of two-step blocked samplers exhibits vastly superior convergence behavior compared to the original three-step sampler in high-dimensional regimes on simulated data as well as data from a variety of applications including gene expression data, infrared spectroscopy data, and socio-economic/law enforcement data.
Consistent estimation of the spectrum of trace class Data Augmentation algorithms
TLDR
This paper proposes a novel method to consistently estimate the entire spectrum of a general class of Markov chains arising from a popular and widely used statistical approach known as Data Augmentation.
Estimating the spectral gap of a trace-class Markov operator
The utility of a Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithm is, in large part, determined by the size of the spectral gap of the corresponding Markov operator. However, calculating (and even approximating)

A spectral analytic comparison of trace-class data augmentation algorithms and their sandwich variants
TLDR
A substantial refinement of this operator norm inequality is developed, and under regularity conditions implying that $K$ is a trace-class operator, it is shown that it is also a positive, trace- class operator, and that the spectrum of $K^*$ dominates that of$K$ in the sense that the ordered elements of the former are all less than or equal to the corresponding element of the latter.
Improving the Convergence Properties of the Data Augmentation Algorithm with an Application to Bayesian Mixture Modeling
The reversible Markov chains that drive the data augmentation (DA) and sandwich algorithms define self-adjoint operators whose spectra encode the convergence properties of the algorithms. When the
Geometric ergodicity and the spectral gap of non-reversible Markov chains
We argue that the spectral theory of non-reversible Markov chains may often be more effectively cast within the framework of the naturally associated weighted-L∞ space $${L_\infty^V}$$ , instead of
Covariance structure of the Gibbs sampler with applications to the comparisons of estimators and augmentation schemes
TLDR
It is proved that Rao-Blackwellization causes a one-lag delay for the autocovariances among dependent samples obtained from data augmentation, and consequently, the mixture approximation produces estimates with smaller variances than the empirical approximation.
Honest Exploration of Intractable Probability Distributions via Markov Chain Monte Carlo
Two important questions that must be answered whenever a Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm is used are (Q1) What is an appropriate burn-in? and (Q2) How long should the sampling continue

We consider likelihood-based inference from multivariate regression models with independent Student-t errors. Some very intruiging pitfalls of both Bayesian and classical methods on the basis of
Markov Chains for Exploring Posterior Distributions
Several Markov chain methods are available for sampling from a posterior distribution. Two important examples are the Gibbs sampler and the Metropolis algorithm. In addition, several strategies are
