ABSTRACT
We describe a novel Markov Chain Monte Carlo sampling algorithm for efficient inference in statistical models involving high-dimensional discrete state spaces. The Hamming Ball Sampler uses an auxiliary variable construction that adaptively truncates the model space allowing iterative exploration of the full model space in polynomial time. The sampler is computationally tractable for large models where conventional methods are infeasible. We illustrate the generic utility of our sampling algorithm through a number of applications in expression quantitative trait loci analysis (variable selection), tumor deconvolution (mixture models) and energy disaggregation (Factorial Hidden Markov Models).
