Example text

Vlugt and Smit [23] recently showed that parallel tempering is especially suitable for transition path sampling. In a conventional parallel tempering calculation, several simulations are performed in parallel at different temperatures. One allows exchange of configurations between different temperature levels with a probability satisfying detailed balance. At low temperatures, the system is confined to the vicinity of a local energy minimum, but at high temperatures the system can surmount energetic barriers readily.

11. Fraction of transition pathways of type 1, 2, and 3 found in the simulations as a function of : /k T. The panel on the top shows the results obtained without parallel tempering. The bottom panel depicts the results of parallel tempering simulations with 20 temperature levels. These results demonstrate that parallel tempering can enhance sampling considerably. Without parallel tempering severe sampling problems occur for Y 1/k T 9 1/ . With parallel tempering, all path space regions are visited with the correct probability.

Such a study is most conveniently done by developing a separate path sampling module and interfacing it with the existing MD program through system calls and input—output to and from disk. In such combination of an existing MD program with a new path sampling module, a deterministic shooting move, for example, can be carried out as follows. In the path sampling module, a time slice is first selected from the existing path that is stored in memory or on disk. A. and the modified phase-space point is written to a file from which it can later by read by the MD program.
