On Geometric Ergodicity of Additive and Multiplicative Transformation Based Markov Chain Monte Carlo in High DimensionsDec 03 2013Jan 23 2017Recently Dutta and Bhattacharya (2013) introduced a novel Markov Chain Monte Carlo methodology that can simultaneously update all the components of high dimensional parameters using simple deterministic transformations of a one-dimensional random variable ...

A Brief Tutorial on Transformation Based Markov Chain Monte Carlo and Optimal Scaling of the Additive TransformationJul 04 2013Jan 23 2017We consider the recently introduced Transformation-based Markov Chain Monte Carlo (TMCMC) (Dutta and Bhattacharya (2014)), a methodology that is designed to update all the parameters simultaneously using some simple deterministic transformation of a onedimensional ...

On Optimal Scaling of Additive Transformation Based Markov Chain Monte CarloJul 04 2013Sep 15 2015Study of diffusion limits of the Metropolis-Hastings algorithm in high dimensions yields useful quantificaton of the scaling of the underlying proposal distribution in terms of the dimensionality. Here we consider the recently introduced Transformation-based ... More

Degree Sequence of Random Permutation GraphsMar 12 2015In this paper we study the degree sequence of the permutation graph $G_{\pi_n}$ associated with a sequence $\pi_n\in S_n$ of random permutations. Joint limiting distributions of the degrees are established using results from graph and permutation limit ... More

Bound States of Pseudo-Dirac Dark MatterDec 07 2018We study the bound-state spectrum in a simple model of pseudo-Dirac dark matter, and examine how the rate of bound-state formation through radiative capture compares to Sommerfeld-enhanced annihilation. We use this model as an example to delineate the ... More
