In such cases you may want to perform a t that takes this advance information properly into account, neither completely freezing a parameter at a predetermined value (as in Fitlin 15.4) nor completely leaving it to be determined by the data set.

The formalism for doing this is called use of a priori covariances. A related problem occurs in signal processing and control theory, where it is sometimes desired to track (i.e.

, maintain an estimate of) a time-varying signal in the presence of noise. If the signal is known to be characterized by some number of parameters that vary only slowly, then the formalism of Kalman ltering tells how the incoming raw measurements of the signal should be processed to produce best parameter estimates as a function of time. For example, if the signal is a frequencymodulated sine wave, then the slowly varying parameter might be the instantaneous frequency.

The Kalman lter for this case is called a phase-locked loop and is implemented in the circuitry of modern radio receivers [4,5].. CITED REFERENCES AND FURTHER READING: Huber, P.J. 1981, Robust Statistics (New York: Wiley).

Like Monte Carlo integra-. 15.8 Markov Chain Monte Carlo tion, Markov chain Monte Car lo or MCMC is a random sampling method. Unlike Monte Carlo integration, however, the goal of MCMC is not to sample a multidimensional region uniformly. Rather, the goal is to visit a point x with a probability proportional to some given distribution function .

x/. The distribution .x/ is not quite a probability, because it is not necessarily normalized to have unity integral over the sampled region; but it is proportional to a probability.

Why would we want to sample a distribution in this way The answer is that Bayesian methods, often implemented using MCMC, provide a powerful way of estimating the parameters of a model and their degree of uncertainty. A typical case is that there is a given set of data D, and that we are able to calculate the probability of the data set given the values of the model parameters x, that is, P .Djx/.

If we assume a prior P .x/, then Bayes theorem says that the (posterior) probability of the model is proportional to .x/ P .

Djx/P .x/, but with an unknown normalizing constant. Because of this unknown constant, .

x/ is not a normalized probability density. But if we can sample from it, we can estimate any quantity of interest, for example its mean or variance. Indeed, we can readily recover a normalized probability density by observing how often we sample a given volume d x.

Often even more useful, we can observe the distribution of any single component or set of components of the vector x, equivalent to marginalizing (i.e., integrating over) the other components.

We could in principle obtain all the same information by ordinary Monte Carlo integration over the region of interest, computing the value of .xi / at every (uniformly) sampled point xi . The huge advantage of MCMC is that it automatically puts its sample points preferentially where .

x/ is large (in fact, in direct proportion). In a high-dimensional space, or where .x/ is expensive to compute, this can be advantageous by many orders of magnitude.

Two insights, originally due to Metropolis and colleagues in the early 1950s, lead to feasible MCMC methods. The rst is the idea that we should try to sample .x/ not via unrelated, independent points, but rather by a Markov chain, a sequence of points x0 ; x1 ; x2 ; : : : that, while locally correlated, can be shown to eventually visit every point x in proportion to .

x/, the ergodic property. Here the word Markov means that each point xi is chosen from a distribution that depends only on the value of the immediately preceding point xi 1 . In other words, the chain has memory extending only to one previous point and is completely de ned by a transition probability function of two variables p.

xi jxi 1 /, the probability with which xi is picked given a previous point xi 1 . The second insight is that if p.xi jxi 1 / is chosen to satisfy the detailed balance equation, (15.

8.1) .x1 /p.

x2 jx1 / D .x2 /p.x1 jx2 / then (up to some technical conditions) the Markov chain will in fact sample .

x/ ergodically. This amazing fact is worthy of some contemplation. Equation (15.

8.1) expresses the idea of physical equilibrium in the reversible transition x1 ! x2 (15.8.

2). That is, if x1 and x2 occur none for none in proportion to .x1 / and .x2 /, respectively, then the overall transition rates in each direction, each the product of a population density and a transition probability, are the same.

To see that this might have something to do with the Markov chain being ergodic, integrate both sides of equation (15.8.1) with.
