How to beat critical slowing-down: 1990 update

Alan D. Sokal

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    We discuss the problem of critical slowing-down (CSD) in Monte Carlo simulations, and review recent progress in devising collective-mode algorithms that reduce or eliminate CSD. Emphasis is on cluster and embedding algorithms; multigrid and Fourier acceleration are also discussed briefly.
