Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) relies at the incontrovertible fact that definite nuclei express a magnetic second, orient by means of a magnetic box, and soak up attribute frequencies within the radiofrequency a part of the spectrum. The spectral strains of the nuclei are hugely stimulated by way of the chemical surroundings i. e. the constitution and interplay of the molecules.

Dellago et al. is sampled. Since this procedure generates a random walk that visits configurations according to their statistical weight, it is also called importance sampling. Monte Carlo procedures can be applied very generally to sample probability distributions [24]. In particular, Monte Carlo techniques can also be used to sample ensembles of pathways. In this case a random walk is carried out in the space of trajectories instead of configuration space. The basic step of this procedure consists of generating a new path, x(n) (T ), from an old one, x(o) (T ).

Other examples of deterministic dynamics include the extended Lagrangian dynamics of Car and Parrinello [17] and various dynamics with thermostats such as the Nose-Hoover thermostat [18] or the Gaussian isokinetic thermostat [19]. Also for these types of dynamics the above definition of the transition path ensemble applies. Brownian Dynamics As an example for a stochastic process consider a system evolving according to the Langevin equation in the high friction limit where inertial effects can be neglected and momenta are not required for the description of the system: mγ r˙ = − ∂V (r) +F .

The partition function in the numerator is the one for the ensemble of pathways that start in A and end in B. In a sense, this ratio of partition functions measures the volume in trajectory space occupied by reactive trajectories relative to that of the trajectories starting in A but without restriction on the ending point. This perspective suggests to determine the correlation function C(t) via calculation of ∆F (t) = FAB (t) − FA , the difference of the free energies related to the partition functions in the numerator and denominator.
