Example text

HA (x) + hB (x) is not necessarily unity for all configurations. But if states A and B are stable and the characteristic functions are defined properly, hA (x) + hB (x) = 1 most of the time. Only for short times, for instance during a transition from A to B, we can have hA (x) + hB (x) = 0. Transition Path Sampling Methods 375 To calculate the conditional probability P (B, t|A, 0) from the microscopic dynamics of the system we imagine that we prepare initial conditions x0 according to the equilibrium distribution ρ(x0 ) but restricted to the reactant region A, (52) ρA (x0 ) = ρ(x0 )hA (x0 )/ZA , where ZA = dx0 ρ(x0 )hA (x0 ) (53) normalizes this restricted distribution.

4) Due to the restriction applied to the pathways in the transition path probability (3) a path not beginning in A or not ending in B (or both) has a statistical weight of zero. A path connecting A and B, on the other hand, may have a non-zero weight that depends on the unrestricted path probability P[x(T )]. The transition path ensemble (3) selects only the reactive trajectories from the ensemble of all possible pathways while leaving the relative probabilities of the reactive trajectories among each other unchanged.

If this segment reaches the appropriate stable region, the other segment is grown. The whole path is finally accepted if the boundary condition for that segment is also satisfied. If any of these steps is rejected, the procedure must be started over. The acceptance rule (31) is very general and valid for any procedure that is microscopically reversible in the sense of (30). Cases in which its is applicable include Langevin dynamics, Monte Carlo dynamics and Newtonian dynamics [12]. Since Newtonian dynamics is the arguably most important of these (most MD simulations are based on Newton’s equations of motion), we next discuss the shooting algorithm for this case with initial conditions distributed according to the equilibrium phase space density.
