Matti Vihola has posted a new paper on arXiv about adaptive (random walk) Metropolis-Hastings algorithms. The update in the (lower diagonal) scale matrix is where is the current acceptance probability and the target acceptance rate; is the current random noise for the proposal, ; is a step size sequence decaying to zero. The spirit of

It will often be more efficient to generate graphics in an external software package and then include these files in a LaTeX beamer presentation. The standard LaTeX approach to including graphics can be utilised to perform this task. Fast Tube by Casper The graphicx is useful for including graphics files in a presentation and this package has

We can add coloured boxes with text or mathematics into a LaTeX beamer presentation which is particularly useful if we have definitions, theorem or computer code to highlight this information that may not be so accessible within a paragraph of text.
