Free energy computation of particles with membrane-mediated interactions via Langevin dynamics

09/30/2020 ∙ by Tobias Kies, et al. ∙ 0

We apply well-established concepts of Langevin sampling to derive a new class of algorithms for the efficient computation of free energy differences of fluctuating particles embedded in a 'fast' membrane, i.e., a membrane that instantaneously adapts to varying particle positions. A geometric potential accounting for membrane-mediated particle interaction is derived in the framework of variational hybrid models for particles in membranes. Recent explicit representations of the gradient of the geometric interaction potential allows to apply well-known gradient based Markov Chain Monte-Carlo (MCDC) methods such as Langevin-based sampling.
