Population dynamics method with a multi-canonical feedback control

Abstract : We discuss the Giardin a-Kurchan-Peliti population dynamics method for evaluating large deviations of time averaged quantities in Markov processes [Phys. Rev. Lett. 96, 120603 (2006)]. This method exhibits systematic errors which can be large in some circumstances, particularly for systems with weak noise, or close to dynamical phase transitions. We show how these errors can be mitigated by introducing control forces to within the algorithm. These forces are determined by an iteration-and-feedback scheme, inspired by multicanonical methods in equilibrium sampling. We demonstrate substantially improved results in a simple model and we discuss potential applications to more complex systems.
