rapid mixing

The mixing time of switch Markov chains: a unified approach

We show that the switch Markov chain is rapidly mixing on $P$-stable degree sequences of simple, bipartite, and directed graphs. Consequently, we have rapid mixing on power-law distribution-bounded degree sequences with parameter $\gamma2$ and on …

Half-graphs, other non-stable degree sequences, and the switch Markov chain

In this paper we give a non-trivial family of degree sequences that are not $P$-stable and the switch Markov chain is still rapidly mixing on them. This family has an intimate connection to Tyshkevich-decompositions and strong stability as well.

Efficiently sampling the realizations of bounded, irregular degree sequences of bipartite and directed graphs

Since 1997 a considerable effort has been spent on the study of the **swap** (switch) Markov chains on graphic degree sequences. All of these results assume some kind of regularity in the corresponding degree sequences. Recently, Greenhill and …
