Initial mass matrix


I am new to PyMC3 and found that I cannot really find information on this topic. Maybe you can help.
Is it possible to pass a custom mass matrix to the sampler?
Is it possible to use a dense mass matrix?

Thanks in advance!

Yes: see

Basically, you need to initialized NUTS by hand using step = pm.NUTS(...), and then pass step to pm.sample(...)
