We describe a Langevin diffusion with a target stationary density with respect to Lebesgue measure, as opposed to the volume measure of a previously-proposed diffusion. The two are sometimes equivalent but distinct in general and lead to different Metropolis-adjusted Langevin algorithms, which we compare.
