At time slice x  , RY RY the system has a kinetic energy of K  . Then, a new kinetic energy K  at RY RY time t is selected from a distribution (K). Although any form of (K) can be selected, a smart choice of (K) can increase the efficiency of the simulation considerably. In general, the distribution (K) should be similar to the actual distribution of kinetic energies observed in the system under study. In the study carried out by Geissler and Chandler [16], for example, (K) was chosen to be the distribution of kinetic energies in an equilibrium system in contact with a heat bath.

The sequence of random numbers along a trajectory specifies the noise history R(t). 67) Here, " " is the magnitude of the vector drawn for time t. R This representation of the dynamical path probability emphasizes specific realizations of the random force R. It enables an interesting class of trial moves in trajectory space: A new path x  (T) is obtained from an old path x  (T) by replacing the noise  at one randomly chosen time t’ by a new RY set of random numbers  drawn from the distribution p( ).

67) into Eq. 69) Most factors in the second argument of the min-function cancel because the noise histories of the new and the old trajectories differ only at time t’. Because such a move does not modify the initial time slice of the path [x  : x  ], Eq. 70) Thus, a new path obtained by applying local changes in noise space is accepted if it ends in region B. As described, this algorithm harvests an ensemble of trajectories with identical initial states x , and is therefore incomplete. But sampling the  distribution of initial conditions is in fact very simple for the system considered, since (x) : (x).
