Gibbs free energies via isobaric-isothermal flows

Peter Wirnsberger, Borja Ibarz, George Papamakarios

We present a machine-learning model based on normalizing flows that is trained to sample from the isobaric-isothermal (NPT) ensemble. In our approach, we approximate the joint distribution of a fully-flexible triclinic simulation box and particle coordinates to achieve a desired internal pressure. We test our model on monatomic water in the cubic and hexagonal ice phases and find excellent agreement of Gibbs free energies and other observables compared with established baselines.
