Improving convergence properties of the Data Augmentation algorithm

I already mentioned in a previous post why this is an important paper for me. (There is nothing new  here, compared with this earlier post, except that the paper was re-posted on arXiv!)

The Vanilla Rao–Blackwellization of Metropolis–Hastings algorithms paper with Randal Douc is now published in Annals of Statistics (Volume 39, Number 1 (2011), pages 261-277) and available on-line via the project Euclid. We are currently working with Pierre Jacob on an extension of this idea towards parallelisation

This is fantastic! This is for instance the case for Berger and Wolpert’s classic, The Likelihood Principle.
