By A. Sinclair

This monograph is a marginally revised model of my PhD thesis [86], com­ pleted within the division of laptop technology on the collage of Edin­ burgh in June 1988, with an extra bankruptcy summarising newer advancements. a number of the fabric has seemed within the kind of papers [50,88]. The underlying subject of the monograph is the learn of 2 classical difficulties: counting the weather of a finite set of combinatorial constructions, and producing them uniformly at random. of their distinct shape, those prob­ lems seem to be intractable for plenty of very important constructions, so curiosity has all for discovering effective randomised algorithms that clear up them ap­ proxim~ly, with a small chance of errors. for many common buildings the 2 difficulties are in detail attached at this point of approximation, so it truly is average to check them jointly. on the center of the monograph is a unmarried algorithmic paradigm: sim­ ulate a Markov chain whose states are combinatorial buildings and which converges to a recognized likelihood distribution over them. this system has functions not just in combinatorial counting and iteration, but additionally in different different parts similar to statistical physics and combinatorial optimi­ sation. The potency of the method in any program relies crucially at the fee of convergence of the Markov chain.
