Stopping rule for Latin hypercube sampling (LHS)

I'm a rookie of the statistics environment. I am looking for a "stopping rule" (or number of simulations required to get convergence) for Latin Hypercube Sampling (LHS) simulations. Normally, for ...

Latin hypercube sampling with categorical variables

I would like to run sensitivity analyses on my agent-based model. My model has 20 parameters that I need to vary. I generated 8 artificial landscapes that vary in resource aggregation (r) and my model ...

Latin Hypercube around set points

Is there a method for constructing a LHC around set points? For example, I want to test a component in a system and I have enough time to run 20 conditions. I expect that in the system, the component ...

Can a Latin Hypercube Sampling design include constraints relating the variables?

I am trying to generate an experimental design using a Latin hypercube on three dimensions. I'm using MATLAB's lhsdesign(), but my question is about lhs sampling in general. Two of my three variables,...

Method for Sampling High Dimensionality Simulation (similar to Latin Hypercube Sampling)

I need to calculate the expected outputs (Yj) from a large non-linear simulation model (Mj) which takes 2^N possible input strings (Bi), each with known probability fi (simple binomial). N is ...

Is it valid to use latin-hypercube sampling in parallel sampling?

I am sampling from a model 10 times in series, doing this in 50 parallel processes. I am using LHS to generate samples each set of ten samples, although each of the 50 parallel runs' samples are ...

When is Latin Hypercube Sampling (LHS) a good idea?

In this paper: http://salserver.org.aalto.fi/vanhat_sivut/Opinnot/Mat-2.4108/pdf-files/emat08.pdf [1] equation 6 shows that if $\operatorname{ cov} \left(f\left(x_1\right),f\left(x_2\right)\right)$ is ...

Why using MCMC, not LHS (Latin Hypercube Sampling)?

Let's say I have to find the posterior distribution of a Bayesian estimate. Why should I use an MCMC chain of length 10,000 but not do a Latin Hypercube Sampling of 10,000 samples and calculate* the ...

Design on irregular domain

I am trying to get a design over some input parameters for a computer model, saying an input vector $X=(X_1,...,X_k)$. The domain of $X$ is irregular, not a hypercube (so I guess conventional Latin ...
