hwk14.1 - due fri 5/3

This week's homework will consist of 2 parts. It is due at the beginning of the last lecture on Friday 5/3.

1. Read section 1 (p.1-3) of the Markov Chain Monte Carlo Revolution paper below. Write a brief (about half page) summary. It is likely that you won't understand some of the mathematics alluded to in these 3 pages, but do your best. At a minimum, describe the problem they are solving, the states of Markov chain they made to solve it, and some idea of what this Metropolis random walk is.

I plan to make this paper the subject of our final lecture in m27.

2. Hwk posted below:
5.2 #13,29
6.3 #7,11,13,14,18

CONGRATULATIONS. You have completed the homework for M27. Well done.
