Mixing, stopping, lifting, and other keys to the second Markov-chain revolution

In this talk, I will discuss recent transformative concepts in the theory and practice of Monte Carlo algorithms. As examples, I will consider card shuffling, reversible and non-reversible single-particle motion, and the brand-new lifted TASEP (totally asymmetric simple exclusion process), a solvable example of event-chain Monte Carlo dynamics for N-particle systems.
