Methods for sampling (MD, HMC) 1. Motivation: sampling conformational space of proteins 3. Evaluation of new Shadow HMC 4. Future applications**Classical molecular dynamics**• Newton’s equations of motion: • Atoms • Molecules • CHARMM force field(Chemistry at Harvard MolecularMechanics) Bonds, angles and torsions**What is a Forcefield?**In molecular dynamics a molecule is described as a series of charged points (atoms) linked by springs (bonds). To describe the time evolution of bond lengths, bond angles and torsions, also the nonbond van der Waals and elecrostatic interactions between atoms, one uses a forcefield. The forcefield is a collection of equations and associated constants designed to reproduce molecular geometry and selected properties of tested structures.**Energy Terms Described in the CHARMm forcefield**Bond Angle Dihedral Improper**Energy Functions**Ubond = oscillations about the equilibrium bond length Uangle = oscillations of 3 atoms about an equilibrium angle Udihedral = torsional rotation of 4 atoms about a central bond Unonbond = non-bonded energy terms (electrostatics and Lennard-Jones)**Molecular Dynamics –what does it mean?**MD = change in conformation over time using a forcefield Energy Energy supplied to the minimized system at the start of the simulation Conformation impossible to access through MD Conformational change**MD, MC, and HMC in sampling**• Molecular Dynamics takes long steps in phase space, but it may get trapped • Monte Carlo makes a random walk (short steps), it may escape minima due to randomness • Can we combine these two methods? MD MC HMC**Hybrid Monte Carlo**• We can sample from a distribution with density p(x) by simulating a Markov chain with the following transitions: • From the current state, x, a candidate state x’ is drawn from a proposal distribution S(x,x’). The proposed state is accepted with prob.min[1,(p(x’) S(x’,x)) / (p(x) S(x,x’))] • If the proposal distribution is symmetric, S(x’,x)) = S(x,x’)), then the acceptance prob. only depends on p(x’) / p(x)**Hybrid Monte Carlo II**• Proposal functions must be reversible: if x’ = s(x), then x = s(x’) • Proposal functions must preserve volume Jacobian must have absolute value one • Valid proposal: x’ = -x • Invalid proposals: • x’ = 1 / x (Jacobian not 1) • x’ = x + 5 (not reversible)**Hybrid Monte Carlo III**• Hamiltonian dynamics preserve volume in phase space • Hamiltonian dynamics conserve the Hamiltonian H(q,p) • Reversible symplectic integrators for Hamiltonian systems preserve volume in phase space • Conservation of the Hamiltonian depends on the accuracy of the integrator • Hybrid Monte Carlo: Use reversible symplectic integrator for MD to generate the next proposal in MC**HMC Algorithm**Perform the following steps: 1. Draw random values for the momenta p from normal distribution; use given positions q 2. Perform cyclelength steps of MD, using a symplectic reversible integrator with timestep t, generating (q’,p’) 3. Compute change in total energy • H = H(q’,p’) - H(q,p) 4. Accept new state based on exp(- H )**Hybrid Monte Carlo IV**Advantages of HMC: • HMC can propose and accept distant points in phase space, provided the accuracy of the MD integrator is high enough • HMC can move in a biased way, rather than in a random walk (distance k vs sqrt(k)) • HMC can quickly change the probability density**Hybrid Monte Carlo V**• As the number of atoms increases, the total error in the H(q,p) increases. The error is related to the time step used in MD • Analysis of N replicas of multivariate Gaussian distributions shows that HMC takes O(N5/4)withtime step t = O(N-1/4) Kennedy & Pendleton, 91**Hybrid Monte Carlo VI**• The key problem in scaling is the accuracy of the MD integrator • More accurate methods could help scaling • Creutz and Gocksch89 proposed higher order symplectic methods for HMC • In MD, however, these methods are more expensive than the scaling gain. They need more force evaluations per step**Overview**2. Methods for sampling (MD, HMC) 1. Motivation: sampling conformational space of proteins 3. Evaluation of new Shadow HMC 4. Future applications**Improved HMC**• Symplectic integrators conserve exactly (within roundoff error) a modified Hamiltonian that for short MD simulations (such as in HMC) stays close to the true Hamiltonian Sanz-Serna & Calvo 94 • Our idea is to use highly accurate approximations to the modified Hamiltonian in order to improve the scaling of HMC**Shadow Hamiltonian**Work by Skeel and Hardy, 2001, shows how to compute an arbitrarily accurate approximation to the modified Hamiltonian, called the Shadow Hamiltonian • Hamiltonian: H=1/2pTM-1p + U(q) • Modified Hamiltonian: HM = H + O(t p) • Shadow Hamiltonian: SH2p = HM + O(t 2p) • Arbitrary accuracy • Easy to compute • Stable energy graph • Example, SH4 = H – f( qn-1, qn-2, pn-1, pn-2 ,βn-1 ,βn-2)**Shadow HMC**• Replace total energy H with shadow energy • SH2m = SH2m (q’,p’) – SH2m (q,p) • Nearly linear scalability of sampling rate Computational cost SHMC, N(1+1/2m),where m is accuracy order of integrator • Extra storage (m copies of q and p) • Moderate overhead (25% for small proteins)**Front-end**libfrontend Middle layer libintegrators back-end libbase, libtopology libparallel, libforces ProtoMol: a framework for MD Matthey, et al, ACM Tran.
