The authors simulated self-avoiding walks on the square lattice with fixed endpoints by means of a dynamic Monte Carlo algorithm. From these data they obtain an evaluation of the effective coordination number mu and the critical exponents alpha and v. They can therefore test the hyperscaling relation 2- alpha =dv with a careful estimate of systematic and statistical errors.
