Sampling Biased Monotonic Surfaces using Exponential Metrics
COMBINATORICS PROBABILITY & COMPUTING, pp. 672-697, 2020.
Monotonic surfaces spanning finite regions of DOUBLE-STRUCK CAPITAL Z(d)arise in many contexts, including DNA-based self-assembly, card-shuffling and lozenge tilings. One method that has been used to uniformly generate these surfaces is a Markov chain that iteratively adds or removes a single cube below the surface during a step. We consi...More
