Acceptance probabilities for displacing initial and ﬁnal time slices are somewhat different . The local algorithm suffers from several shortcomings. The most serious of these is its inefﬁciency. In contrast to shooting and shifting moves, local moves sample phase space with a rate proportional to L , where L is the number of time slices in a path . This unfavorable scaling makes the local algorithm impractical for all but the simplest problems. Furthermore, all time steps of a path must be stored in computer memory, a burdensome task for high-dimensional systems.
Pathways are repeated many times before a new path is accepted. Again, correlations between subsequent pathways decay slowly. The optimum magnitude of the perturbation x lies between these two extremes, which is completely analogous to the situation in conventional Monte Carlo simulations. In that case, the optimum acceptance probability is often near 50% . The effect of the magnitude of x on the efﬁciency of transition path sampling can be systematically analyzed by calculating correlation functions of various quantities as a function of the number of simulations cycles.
