### Mixing rates for the Gibbs sampler over
Restricted Boltzmann Machines

**Abstract:**
The mixing rate of a Markov chain
(X_{t})_{t=0}^{∞} is the minimum
number of steps before the distribution of X_{t} is close
to its stationary distribution with respect to total variation
distance. In this talk, we give upper and lower bounds for the mixing rate
of a particular Markov chain, the Gibbs sampler over Restricted Boltzmann
Machines.
