Scan Order in Gibbs Sampling: Models in Which it Matters and Bounds on How Much
NIPS, pp. 1-9, 2016.
Gibbs sampling is a Markov Chain Monte Carlo sampling technique that iteratively samples variables from their conditional distributions. There are two common scan orders for the variables: random scan and systematic scan. Due to the benefits of locality in hardware, systematic scan is commonly used, even though most statistical guarantees...More
