# Questions tagged [accept-reject]

Use this tag for accept-reject sampling methods. These are also known as rejection sampling methods. These methods sample a random variable from a dominating measure (h) and accepts the draw if an auxiliary random variable (a uniform) is less than the desired measure (g), so accept the draw if u<g. Otherwise draw another pair. You can think of this as sampling on a space with 1 additional dimension where the additional dimension is uniform under g.

### Can I get “fail to reject the null” when testing with test statistic, and “reject the null” when testing with P-value at the same time? [duplicate]

Can I get "fail to reject the null" when testing with test statistic, and "reject the null" when testing with P-value at the same time in a same nonlinear regression model?

### Rejection sampling ineffectiveness in high dimensions

I guess I really have two questions. First, iv'e seen quoted in a couple of places that the probability of accepting a given sample in a rejection sampling algorithm (sampling from a density $f$ with ...

### Finding a proposal distribution in acceptance-rejection method

I'm learning the Acceptance-Rejection method but I am having a hard time finding a g(x) except using uniform distribution to simulate the f(x). How could we find a g(x) that has a simple pdf and is ...

### Monte Carlo sampling ( accept/reject) for geographic dataset

I have a dataset consisting of latitude and longitude and I'm confused on which approach to use to determine the distribution of points so I can apply the monte Carlo accept/reject for sampling. this ...
