Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) is a specialized technique within the broader class of Monte Carlo methods. It is widely used for sampling from complex probability distributions, particularly when direct sampling is challenging or impossible. MCMC methods involve constructing a Markov chain, where each step in the chain is a sample from a distribution that depends on the previous state. The chain iteratively explores the space of possible values, eventually converging to the target distribution. Here’s a comprehensive overview of Markov Chain Monte Carlo:

# 1. Basic Principles:

## Markov Chain:

- A sequence of random variables.
- The probability distribution of each variable depends solely on the immediately preceding one.
- Each random variable’s future state depends only on its current state, not the entire history. This property is known as the Markov property.
- Transitions between states in a Markov chain are determined by transition probabilities.
- Markov chains exhibit a memoryless property, making them useful for modeling systems where the future state depends only on the present state.
- Markov chains can be discrete or continuous…
