the number of inequalities and `d` the dimension of the sample space.
equality_constraints: Tensors `(C, d)` describing the equality constraints
`C @ x = d`, where `C` is a `n_eq_con x d`-dim Tensor and `d` is a
`n_eq_con x 1`-dim Tensor with `n_eq_con` the number of equalities.
bounds: A `2 x d`-dim tensor of box bounds, where `inf` (`-inf`) means
that the respective dimension is unbounded from above (below).
interior_point: A `d x 1`-dim Tensor representing a point in the
(relative) interior of the polytope. If omitted, determined
automatically by solving a Linear Program.
Warning: The vertex enumeration performed in this algorithm can become
extremely costly if there are a large number of inequalities. Similarly,
the triangulation can get very expensive in high dimensions. Only use
this algorithm for moderate dimensions / moderately complex constraint sets.
An alternative is the `HitAndRunPolytopeSampler`.
