Information
- Special Session Monte Carlo Methods will be held at The 12th AIMS Conference on Dynamical Systems, Differential Equations and Applications at Taipei (5 July - 9 July 2018). This session will probably focus more on the mathematical aspects of the Monte Carlo method compared to the Singapore workshop.
- A workshop Bayesian Computation for High-Dimensional Statistical Models will be held at Singapore (27 August - 21 September 2018). This will be an excellent opportunity to meet with Bayesian Monte Carlo researchers around the world.
- 2017.March.14: 日本評論社の現代統計学という本のうち，ベイズ統計に関する10ページほど担当させていただきました．
- 2016.Apr.13: Pseudo-code of MpCN algorithm, which is a derivative-free general purpose MCMC, can be found here. See this paper for high-dimension asymptitics, and see this recent paper for ergodicity. The latter paper is short and is much easier than the former!
- 2015.Sep.16: CREST team website is here. Research Director is Prof. Nakahiro Yoshida in Tokyo. This project aims at developing mathematical statistics and probability theory to provide methodologies for modeling and analysis of complex random systems.
- 2015.Sep.16: Check probability and statistics seminars in Osaka University; here, here, here and here.
