Sampling Algebraic Varieties
See the video of this talk.
I will report on an algorithm for sampling probability distributions on real algebraic varieties. This algorithm is based on intersecting with linear spaces, produces i.i.d. samples and can handle several connected components. I will further discuss possible extensions of this idea.
