BVG: Programs demonstrating Markov chain sampling from a bivariate Gaussian. The 'bvg' programs implement sampling from a bivariate Gaussian distribution (or several independent replications of a bivariate Gaussian), using the Markov chain Monte Carlo package. This is done primarily for testing and demonstration purposes. The specification of the bivariate Gaussian distribution is stored in the log file as a record of type 'B' and index -1. The coordinates found each iteration are stored in records of type 'X'. The Markov chain Monte Carlo package will of course put various other records in the log file as well.
