The basic idea of the algorithm is to regrow entire polymers in a biased fashion in order to avoid unfavorable overlaps. Due to the formal similarity between polymers and stochastic pathways a configurational bias Monte Carlo scheme can be constructed to sample transition pathways [5]. To date, this algorithm has been only used to study the kinetics of hydrogen bonds in liquid water [8]. Also, algorithms familiar from path integral simulations [52], such as the staging algorithm [55], can be used to sample the transition path ensemble for stochastic trajectories.

Surfaces, however, it may be difficult to sample all statistically relevant pathways. For example, proton transfer occurs in the protonated water trimer via two different classes of pathways [15]. Switching from one class of transition pathways to the other is hindered by a high energetic barrier. One might expect similar problems in sampling protein folding pathways for physiologically relevant temperatures. Such ergodicity problems are akin to those encountered in Monte Carlo simulations of supercooled liquids and glasses, where locally stable states are separated by high energy barriers.

21 1. Randomly select a time slice x  on a existing trajectory x  (T). RY 2. Modify the selected time slice by adding a random displacement: x  : x  ; x. The RY RY random displacement must be consistent with the ensemble of initial conditions and should be symmetric with respect to the reverse move. 3. Accept the new shooting point with probability min[1, (x  )/ (x  )]. Abort the trial RY RY move if the shooting point is rejected. 4. If the shooting point is accepted, integrate the equations of motion forward to time T starting from x  .
