AMCMC: Stata module to provide Mata functions and structures for adaptive Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling
amcmc is a collection of functions for performing adaptive Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling in Mata. Functions can be implemented as a Mata function, or using a series of structured commands. The function(s) can be used to sample from stand alone distributions, set up to work with models pre-programmed with moptimize or optimize, and set up to function as a step in a larger algorithm.
