As far as I understand:

  1. Pruning means deleting something.
  2. Enrich means to enhance/increase weight.

Now my question is, in the case of pruned-enriched Rosenbluth method (PERM):

For pruning/enriching, are we deleting/adding to some polymers chains or are we deleting/adding some beads in all polymer chains?

Basically, when we are updating the weights, what are we replacing them with?
