Tuning the durations of the Hamiltonian flow in Hamiltonian Monte Carlo (also called Hybrid Monte Carlo) (HMC) involves a tradeoff between computational cost and sampling quality, which is typically challenging to resolve in a satisfactory way. In this article we present and analyze a randomized HMC method (RHMC), in which these durations are i.i.d. exponential random variables whose mean is a free parameter. We focus on the small time step size limit, where the algorithm is rejection-free anddoi:10.1214/16-aap1255 fatcat:jo3wb2jjznhfvgivdfrvixj7ey
