Approximate Bayesian computation (ABC) [11, 42] is a popular method for Bayesian inference involving an intractable, or expensive to evaluate, likelihood function but where simulation from the model is easy. The method consists of defining an alternative likelihood function which is also in general intractable but naturally lends itself to pseudo-marginal computations , hence making the approach of practical interest. The aim of this chapter is to show the connections of ABC Markov chain Monte Carlo with pseudo-marginal algorithms, review their existing theoretical results, and discuss how these can inform practice and hopefully lead to fruitful methodological developments.

A Surrogate-assisted Reference Vector Guided Evolutionary Algorithm for Computationally Expensive Many-objective Optimization Chugh, Tinkle; Jin, Yaochu; Miettinen, Kaisa; Hakanen, Jussi; Sindhya, Karthik (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2018)We propose a surrogate-assisted reference vector guided evolutionary algorithm (EA) for computationally expensive optimization problems with more than three objectives. The proposed algorithm is based on a recently developed ...

Liu, Jia; Gasbarra, Dario; Railavo, Juha (Elsevier BV, 2016)Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is widely used to characterize, in vivo, the white matter of the central nerve system (CNS). This biological tissue contains much anatomic, structural and orientational information of fibers ...
Kuronen, Mikko; Särkkä, Aila; Vihola, Matti; Myllymäki, Mari (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2021)We propose a hierarchical log Gaussian Cox process (LGCP) for point patterns, where a set of points xx affects another set of points yy but not vice versa. We use the model to investigate the effect of large trees on the ...
Burgas, Daniel; Ovaskainen, Otso; Blanchet, F. Guillaume; Byholm, Patrik (Frontiers Media SA, 2021)Despite the wide recognition that strongly interacting species can influence distributions of other species, species interactions are often disregarded when assessing or projecting biodiversity distributions. In particular, ...
