Dear Hive mind! I seek papers on Monte-Carlo sampling with custom proposal distributions vs likelihood functions (proposal distributions dependent on likelihood functions). A bit like Hamiltonian sampling methods do but they use a fixed proposal distribution. We would like to develop custom proposals distributions per problem. Methods to create proposal distributions. Please boost.
