Summary of "Defining, calculating and converging observables of kinetic transition networks."

Kinetic transition networks of local minima and transition states are able to capture the dynamics of numerous systems in chemistry, biology and materials science. However, extracting observables is numerically challenging for large networks and will in general be sensitive to additional computational discovery. To have any measure of convergence for observables, these sensitivities must be regularly calculated. We present a matrix formulation of the discrete path sampling framework for kinetic transition networks, deriving expressions for branching probabilities, transition rates, and waiting times. Using the concept of the quasistationary distribution a clear hierarchy of expressions for network observables is established, from exact results to steady state approximations. We use these results in combination with the graph transformation method to derive the sensitivity with respect to perturbations of the known kinetic transition network, giving explicit terms for the pairwise sensitivity, and discussing the pathwise sensitivity. These results provide guidelines for converging the network with respect to additional sampling, focusing on the estimates obtained for the overall rate coefficients between product and reactant states. We demonstrate this procedure for transitions in the double-funnel landscape of the 38 atom Lennard-Jones cluster.

Phenotypic changes of EPITHELIAL CELLS to MESENCHYME type, which increase cell mobility critical in many developmental processes such as NEURAL TUBE development. NEOPLASM METASTASIS and DISEASE PROGRESSION may also induce this transition.

Health care provided during a transition to a different mode of care (e.g., TRANSITION TO ADULT CARE).

Parasomnias characterized by behavioral abnormalities that occur during the transition between wakefulness and sleep (or between sleep and wakefulness).

Large natural streams of FRESH WATER formed by converging tributaries and which empty into a body of water (lake or ocean).

Demographic and epidemiologic changes that have occurred in the last five decades in many developing countries and that are characterized by major growth in the number and proportion of middle-aged and elderly persons and in the frequency of the diseases that occur in these age groups. The health transition is the result of efforts to improve maternal and child health via primary care and outreach services and such efforts have been responsible for a decrease in the birth rate; reduced maternal mortality; improved preventive services; reduced infant mortality, and the increased life expectancy that defines the transition.
