Analysis of Accelerated Dynamics Methods

We will present some mathematical analysis of two algorithms which have been proposed by A.F. Voter to generate efficiently state to state dynamics: the parallel replica dynamics and the hyperdynamics. The analysis heavily relies on the notion of quasi-stationary distribution.
