Forward Flux Sampling-type schemes for simulating rare events: Efficiency analysis
Bennett-Chandler-type methods and TPS are suitable for systems with stochastic or deterministic dynamics, but they require knowledge of the steady state phase space density, which means that the system must be in equilibrium.
Forward Flux Sampling-type schemes for simulating rare events: Efficiency analysis
To our knowledge, the only other path sampling method that is suitable for nonequilibrium systems is that proposed recently by Crooks and Chandler, which adopts a “TPS”-type methodology, generating new stochastic paths from old paths by changing the random number history.

The main differences are differences in the diagrammatic rules that arise directly from the association of a factor of the pair potential rather than the corresponding Mayer f -function with each bond. A self-contained derivation of the Chandler-Pratt Mayer cluster expansion for a molecular liquid is given in Sec. 22.
