AbstractWe construct Markov chain algorithms for sampling from discrete
exponential families conditional on a sufficient statistic. Examples include generating tables with fixed row and column sums and higher dimensional analogs. The algorithms involve finding bases for
associated polynomial ideals and so an excursion into computational
algebraic geometry.
