Markov Chains and Mixing Times
by D. A. Levin, Y. Peres, E. L. Wilmer
Publisher: American Mathematical Society 2008
Number of pages: 387
This book is an introduction to the modern approach to the theory of Markov chains. The main goal of this approach is to determine the rate of convergence of a Markov chain to the stationary distribution as a function of the size and geometry of the state space. The authors develop the key tools for estimating convergence times, including coupling, strong stationary times, and spectral methods.

This text is an attempt to give a reasonably self-contained presentation of the basic theory of stochastic partial differential equations, taking for granted basic measure theory, functional analysis and probability theory, but nothing else.

This e-book is organized as a website that provides access to a series of lectures on fundamentals of probability, statistics and econometrics, as well as to a number of exercises on the same topics. The level is intermediate.

The intent of the website and these notes is to provide an intuitive supplement to an introductory level probability and statistics course. The level is also aimed at students who are returning to the subject and would like a concise refresher ...

A particular Bayesian field theory is defined by combining a likelihood model, providing a probabilistic description of the measurement process, and a prior model, providing the information necessary to generalize from training to non-training data.
