Abstract: Many problems arising from chemistry, physics and materials science involve rare but significant exit events and/or transition events between stable states. The transitions happen on a time scale much longer than the intrinsic time scale of the dynamical system. Examples of such events are conformational changes of biomolecules, chemical reactions, etc. The purpose of this minisymposium is to bring together experts working in theory, numerical algorithms and application issues, such as analysis of models for metastable systems, free energy calculation, importance sampling, accelerated dynamics, and sampling of transition pathways.
