The following post presents a very good explanation of the intuition of Hamiltonian dynamics and introduction of HMC algorithm.

The random-walk behavior of many Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms makes Markov chain convergence to a target stationary distribution inefficient, resulting in slow m…
