Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to construct perfect samplers for length-interacting Arak--Clifford--Surgailis polygonal Markov fields in the plane with nodes of order 2 (V-shaped nodes). This is achieved by providing for the polygonal fields a hard core marked point process representation with individual points carrying polygonal loops as their marks, so that the coupling from the past and clan of ancestors routines can be adopted.
