The change is accepted with probability = exp (-D/ k T)

D= E2- E1  

E1 = energy of current configuration

E2 = energy of perturbed configuration

(change in energy from current configuration to perturbed configuration)

k = 1.3806503*10^-23, Boltzmann’s constant

T = temperature (K)

Since E2 is bigger than E1, D is positive, k and T are also positive by nature

e is raised to a negative quantity; the expression will always yield a value between 0 and 1
