The technique of modifying the geometry of a problem from Euclidean to Hessian metric has proved to be quite effective in optimization, and has been the subject of study for sampling. The Mirror Langevin Diffusion (MLD) is a sampling analogue of mirror flow in continuous time, and it has nice convergence properties under log-Sobolev or Poincare inequalities relative to the Hessian metric, as shown by Chewi et al. (2020). In discrete time, a simple discretization of MLD is the Mirror LangevinarXiv:2109.12077v2 fatcat:s376fgfoize3pa5mcfn2nsgrdi
