We describe a method for treating the sparse or rare-event sampling problem. Our approach is based on the introduction of a family of modified importance functions, functions that are related to but easier to sample than the original statistical distribution. We quantify the performance of the approach for a series of example problems using an asymptotic convergence analysis based on transition matrix methods.
