minimum density of states criterion

This is a criterion used in Rice–Ramsperger–Kassel–Marcus (RRKM) theory for locating the transition state. The reaction coordinater at the transition state, according to this criterion, is given by ∂ ( N ɛ r ) ∂ r = 0, where N ɛ r is the density of states at an internal energyɛ r.
