Associated scholarship(s):15/12595-4 - Perfect simulation of Markov random fields on graphs, BE.EP.DR


The main goal of this research project is the construction and study of perfect simulation algorithms for probabilistic networks. We will consider the problem of perfect simulation of Markov random fields taking values on a finite alphabet, both in the case of a fixed underlying graph as well as in the case of a random underlying graph. For the latter we will consider principally the exponential random graph model. In order to achieve these goals, we will adapt some techniques from the literature and we will study the theoretical properties of the algorithms proposed. (AU)
