To λn in successive jumps. This probability can be expressed as P(λ0 → λ1 → λ2 → · · · → λn ) = P(λ0 ) × P(λ0 → λ1 |λ0 ) × P(λ1 → λ2 |λ0 → λ1 ) × P(λ2 → λ3 |λ0 → λ1 → λ2 ) × · · · × P(λn−1 → λn |λ0 → λ1 → λ2 → · · · λn−2 → λn−1 ) (30) This is an exact non-Markovian expression for this speciﬁc crossing sequence that looks similar to Eq. (29). However, it does not say anything about the many different trajectories that could connect λ0 with λn . For instance, we should also take into account the sequence λ0 → λ1 → λ2 → λ1 → λ2 → λ3 → .
The PPTIS scheme assumes that for a well positioned set of interfaces the system will lose its memory over a distance that is similar to the interface separation. This implies for any m > 1 P l j k |j±m ≈P l j k |j±1 (32) The PPTIS algorithm consist again of a series of path sampling simulations. Each PPTIS simulation samples a certain path ensemble in which trajectories are conﬁned within two next-nearest interfaces. For instance, the [i± ] path ensemble will consist of all possible trajectories starting and ending at either λi+1 or λi−1 having at least one crossing with the middle interface λi .
