Abstract

The exponential biasing method for Monte Carlo is discussed, and methods leading to the optimal choice of the various parameters involved are considered. Specifically, an approximation procedure for ascertaining optimal parameters is derived and tested. An examination of the physical processes underlying the method illuminates the theoretical derivation.
