Recursions on the marginals and normalizing constant for Gibbs processes

by C. Hardouin and X. Guyon.

Abstract: This paper presents different recursive formulas allowing the calculus of the marginals and the normalizing constant of a Gibbs distribution : The common thread is the use of the underlying Markov properties of such processes. The procedures are illustrated with several examples, particularly the Ising model.

Key Words: Gibbs distribution; Marginal laws; Normalizing constant
