Sampling-based generation strategies.
A SamplingStrategy returns samples from the input points (i.e. Tensors in feature
space), rather than the value for a set of tensors, as acquisition functions do.
The q-batch dimension has similar semantics as for acquisition functions in that the
points across the q-batch are considered jointly for sampling (where as for
q-acquisition functions we evaluate the joint value of the q-batch).

r"""Sample from a set of points according to a tempered acquisition value.
Given an acquisition function `acq_func`, this sampling strategies draws
samples from a `batch_shape x N x d`-dim tensor `X` according to a multinomial
distribution over its indices given by
weight(X[..., i, :]) ~ exp(eta * standardize(acq_func(X[..., i, :])))
where `standardize(Y)` standardizes `Y` to zero mean and unit variance. As the
temperature parameter `eta -> 0`, this approaches uniform sampling, while as
`eta -> infty`, this approaches selecting the maximizer(s) of the acquisition
function `acq_func`.
Example:
>>> UCB = UpperConfidenceBound(model, beta=0.1)
>>> BMUCB = BoltzmannSampling(UCB, eta=0.5)
>>> X = torch.rand(2, 100, 3)
