The Muninn package

Optimized Monte Carlo analysis for generalized ensembles



Muninn is a software package for estimating generalized ensemble weights in Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulations. The method is full automated and makes use of the generalized multihistogram (GMH) equations for estimation the density of states [1]. The package is implemented in C++ and has a convenient interface.

A scientific article describing the method is currently in preparation for publication. The software will be released simultaneously with the publication of the article. A fully functional beta version is available from SourceForge.

The package is developed by Jes Frellsen and Jesper Ferkinghoff-Borg.
