Markov chain Monte Carlo sampler

Sample from a posterior using Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms.

At the moment, the following algorithms are available:

  • Metropolis-Hastings-Green (Geyer, Charles J, 2011);
  • Metropolis-coupled Markov chain Monte Carlo (also known as parallel tempering) (Geyer, Charles J, 1991, Altekar, Gautam and Dwarkadas, Sandhya and Huelsenbeck, John P and Ronquist, Fredrik, 2004);
  • Hamilton Monte Carlo proposal (Neal, Radford M, 2011);
  • No U-Turn Sampler (NUTS) (Matthew D. Hoffman and Andrew Gelman, 2014).

Documentation

The source code contains detailed documentation about general concepts as well as specific functions.

Examples

The Git repository also includes example MCMC analyses. Build them with cabal-install or Stack.

git clone https://github.com/dschrempf/mcmc.git
cd mcmc
stack build

For example, estimate the accuracy of an archer with

stack exec archery

For a more involved example, have a look at a phylogenetic dating project.
