In poetry:

Per melhs cobrir lo mal pes e.l cossire
chan e deport et ai joi e solatz;
e fatz esfortz car sai chantar ni rire,
car eu me mor e nul semblan no.n fatz;
e per Amor sui si apoderatz,
tot m'a vencut a forsa e batalha.
"Per mels cobrir lo mal pes (Anne)" by Bernard De Ventadorn

These effective attempt frequencies are the only input of the KMC not calculated explicitly by DFT, but were estimated from the theoretical PES as well as from experimental data for other systems.
Density Functional Theory of Epitaxial Growth of Metals
Upon reaching the convolution part of the calculation each PE computes only the response for its assigned observation; the result is then transmitted to all other PEs so that each obtains the full response as required for the imaging.
