Generative Flow Networks: a Markov Chain Perspective

no code implementations4 Jul 2023 Tristan Deleu, Yoshua Bengio

While Markov chain Monte Carlo methods (MCMC) provide a general framework to sample from a probability distribution defined up to normalization, they often suffer from slow convergence to the target distribution when the latter is highly multi-modal.
