### Stochastic Gradient Langevin Dynamics Preconditioning Matrix time dependency

I am trying to implement the original Stochastic Gradient Langevin Dynamics paper (https://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.441.3813&rep=rep1&type=pdf) to a problem I've ...

### Metropolis-Adjusted Langevin Monte Carlo on a Bounded Domain [duplicate]

I am trying to apply Langevin Monte Carlo (LMC) to generate samples in a bounded domain, for example, $[0, 1]^D$. How should I properly treat boundaries to ensure valid sampling? I have tried clipping,...

### Reconciling Langevin MC methods as one-step HMC versus as diffusion or brownian motion

I have a basic understanding of Hamiltonian monte carlo and why it works. I've read that Langevin MC is basically a special case of HMC when you only step the dynamics forward a single timestep before ...

### Does Langevin MCMC with decreasing step size require Metropolis-Hastings?

We want to sample from the distribution $P(\theta \mid X)$, which we only know up to a multiplicative constant. In Langvin MCMC, our Markov Chain is  \theta_{t+1} = \theta_t + \frac{\epsilon_t}{2}\...
If you look at the wikipedia explanation of Metropolis adjusted Langevin Algorithm, the acceptance ratio is given by The second equation involves taking the gradient of the log of $\pi(x)$. However, ...
