Improving the acceptance rate of reversible jump MCMC proposals
AbstractRecent articles have commented on the difficulty of proposing efficient reversible jump moves within MCMC. We suggest a new way to make proposals more acceptable using a secondary Markov chain to modify proposed moves--at little extra programming cost.
