A simple web search will come up with numerous review articles.
The higher temperature replicas allow for more frequent barrier crossings to
improve conformational sampling. With adequate sampling and exchanges, your
ground state replica, while discontinuous in temperature space, provides a
richer conformational ensemble than one would normally get with brute-force MD
at a constant temperature.
