Adaptive force biasing algorithms: new convergence results and tensor approximations of the bias

07/20/2020 ∙ by Virginie Ehrlacher, et al. ∙ 0

A modification of the Adaptive Biasing Force method is introduced, in which the free energy is approximated by a sum of tensor products of one-dimensional functions. This enables to handle a larger number of reaction coordinates than the classical algorithm. We prove the algorithm is well-defined and prove the long-time convergence toward a regularized version of the free energy for an idealized version of the algorithm. Numerical experiments demonstrate that the method is able to capture correlations between reaction coordinates.
