minimc

Just a little MCMC

Build Status Coverage Status

This is a test library to provide reference implementations of MCMC algorithms and ideas. The basis and reference for much of this library is from Michael Betancourt's wonderful A Conceptual Introduction to Hamiltonian Monte Carlo.

The highlight of the library right now is the ~15 line Hamiltonian Monte Carlo implementation (which relies on an 8 line integrator). Both of these are commented and documented, but aim to be instructive to read.

Currently Implemented

  • Step size tuning
  • Leapfrog integrator
  • Hamiltonian Monte Carlo
  • Some log probabilities (normal, multivariate normal, mixtures, funnel)

Roadmap

Installation

I would suggest cloning this and playing with the source code, but it can be pip installed with

pip install git+git://github.com/colcarroll/minimc.git

Examples

The API of minimc is mimicked in minimc.minimc_slow, which returns trajectories instead of just samples. This makes for nicer images and experiments, but it is a bit slower.
