dc.description.abstract For the probabilistic model of shuffling by random transpositions we provide a coupling construction with the expected coupling time of order C*n*log(n), where C is a moderate constant. We enlarge the methodology of coupling by including intuitive non-Markovian coupling rules. We discuss why a typical Markovian coupling is not always sufficient for resolving mixing time questions. en_US
