## Restarting an MCMC

You can restart an MCMC in NIMBLE, picking up exactly where the MCMC
left off (including the state of the random number generator).

If the R session in which you ran the MCMC is still open, you can
simply call `runMCMC`

again, or you can use the
`reset = FALSE`

argument to the `$run()`

method of
the MCMC object. (You can’t restart the MCMC from where it left off if
using `nimbleMCMC`

.) Note that if you’ve done any random
number generation since running the MCMC, this will affect the state of
the random number generator.

To restart an MCMC after the R session has ended, please see this
vignette, as well as this
additional vignette that encapsulates the steps into a few useful
functions.
