1998) activate hidden parameters that are identiﬁable in the complete-data model of the original EM algorithm but unidentiﬁable in the observed-data model. They use the standard EM algorithm to ﬁnd maximum likelihood estimate of the original parameter from the parameter-expanded complete-data model. The resulting EM algorithm is called the PX-EM algorithm; a formal deﬁnition of PX-EM is included in Appendix 2A. It is perhaps relatively straightforward to construct the DA version of Meng and van Dyk (1997) because once a complete-data model is chosen it deﬁnes a regular EM and, thereby, a regular DA.

Partition the d-vector x into K blocks and write x = (x1 , . . , xK ) , where K ≤ d and dim(x1 ) + · · · + dim(xK ) = d with dim(xk ) representing the dimension of xk . Denote by fk (xk |x1 , . . , xk−1 , xk+1 , . . , xK ) (k = 1, . . 1) the corresponding full set of conditional distributions. 1). More precisely, K f(x) = f(y) k=1 fjk (xjk |xj1 , . . , xjk−1 , yjk+1 , . . , yjK ) fjk (yjk |xj1 , . . , xjk−1 , yjk+1 , . . 2) for every permutation j on {1, . . , n} and every y ∈ X. Algorithmically, the Gibbs sampler is an iterative sampling scheme.

29). It says that if Xt is a draw from the target π(x) then Xt+1 is also a draw, possibly dependent on Xt , from π(x). Moreover, for almost any P0 (dx) under mild conditions Pt (dx) converges to π(dx). If for π-almost all x, limt→∞ Pr (Xt ∈ A|X0 = x) = π(A) holds for all measurable sets A, π(dx) is called the equilibrium distribution of the Markov chain. 2. 2 Convergence Results Except for rare cases where it is satisfactory to have one or few draws from the target distribution f(x), most MH applications provide approximations to characteristics of f(x), which can be represented by integrals of the form Eπ (h) = h(x)π(dx).
