Couplings and Monte Carlo

Pierre Jacob, Associate Professor of Statistics at Harvard University

In his lectures, Pierre will cover couplings, total variation and optimal transport. He will describe the use of couplings in Monte Carlo methods, such as coupling from the past, diagnostics of convergence, and bias removal.
