Ongoing development towards MCMC improvements
- Presentation on MCMC options
- Cole Monnahan, Jim Thorson, and Ian Taylor gave a talk (Feb-27-2013) detailing options for MCMC in ADMB, and when and how they should be used. Shows the mcrb and mcprobe algorithms, as well as demonstrating the MCMCMC and hybrid methods.
- Updating the MCMC documentation
- Ideas for improvements/clarifications for the existing documentation on MCMC methods.
- MCMC Guide for ADMB
- The goal of this guide is to outline and describe the steps needed to conduct a Bayesian analysis in AD Model Builder. Included are general descriptions of Bayesian inference, priors, work flow and two built-in MCMC algorithms. We hope that the guide will enable users to take full advantage of the features of ADMB that are built in, but not yet well documented.
