Hamiltonian Monte Carlo for Probabilistic Programs with Discontinuities

Hamiltonian Monte Carlo (HMC) is arguably the dominant statistical inference algorithm used in most popular "first-order differentiable" Probabilistic Programming Languages (PPLs). However, the fact that HMC uses derivative information causes complications when the target distribution is non-differentiable with respect to one or more of the latent variables... (read more)
