Abstract: A neighborliness property of marginal polytopes of hierarchical models, depending on the cardinality of the smallest non-face of the underlying simplicial complex, is shown. The case of binary variables is studied explicitly, then the general case is reduced to the binary case. A Markov basis for binary hierarchical models whose simplicial complexes is the complement of an interval is given.
Keywords: marginal polytopes, Markov bases, hierarchical models
