While the principal sampling move in TIS is the shooting move, FFS is based on a non-Metropolis MC scheme called splitting [57, 58]. This approach requires stochastic dynamics, although it has been suggested that FFS is able to treat deterministic dynamics utilizing the Lyapunov instability [59, 60] using small “invisible” stochastic noises [61]. Like TIS, FFS consists of a straightforward MD simulation, from which the escape flux fA is obtained, followed by a series of path sampling simulations.
