### PMC-ERPT

Posted:

**Thu Sep 13, 2012 4:15 pm**Is it the mutated path that goes back into the re-sampling step or the original. If it's the mutation then is pmc-erpt unbiased? Should violate detailed balance right, since the number of mutation is dependent of path intensity.

Trivia: I did a little calculation last where it tried to come up with the simplest case where basing the mutation length on intensity violates detailed balance.

Two states with intensity 1,2 respectively does the trick if you let mutation length be equal to intensity.

Btw, are there any known methods dealing with the more relaxed general balance?
