## A survey on Strongly Rayleigh measures and their mixing time analysis

** Posted on: **

Strongly Rayleigh measures are natural generalizations of measures that satisfy the notion of negative dependence. The class of Strongly Rayleigh measures provides the most useful characterization of Negative Dependence by grounding it in the theory of multivariate stable polynomials. This post attempts to throw some light on the origin of Strongly Rayleigh measures and Determinantal Point Processes and highlights the fast mixing time analysis of the natural MCMC chain in the support of a Strongly Rayleigh measure as shown by Anari, Gharan and Rezaei 2016. ** Read more**
