Revision as of 13:09, 18 September 2013

In this topical group, we discuss advanced / meta sampling techniques. We concentrate on two main problems, namely the sampling of rare transitions and free energies.

For rare events, we use

  • Forward Flux Sampling
  • Transition Interface Sampling

The standard tool here is FRESHS

For free energy calculations

  • Umbrella Sampling
  • Metadynamics

The standard tool here is PLUMED
