Now, I have a high dimension blackbox model, and r = f(\theta, \gamma) + \epsilon, \epsilon\sim N(0, \Sigma). Here, \theta is different for each r and the \gamma is the same for all r.
Now, i got 100 samples of r and corresponding \theta, and i want to calibrate the parameter \gamma, so I set the shape
parameter of \theta to be 100, and then sample the posterior samples using the MH sampler.
However, the sampling is very very very slow, even I have used a simulator for my blackbox model. So is this because the dimension is high and 100+ parameters need to be estimated simultaneously?
I found that sequential process of this problem is easier, so i follow the [Updating Priors — PyMC example gallery (Updating Priors — PyMC example gallery) to build a sequential estimation. By doing this, the dimension is reduced and the sampling seems become faster.
My question is:

Will this process useful? Will the results of batch process and sequential process be the same theoretically?

And I found that the pyMC run many times likelihood for each sample, but by Metropolis–Hastings algorithm  Wikipedia, for each sample, the MH only need to run 2 times the likelihood, so why?
