System size: L xy =50, L z =40 Boundary condition: periodic in 3 directions Typical process of MC simulations : ◆ generate a random configuration of phase variables at a high T ◆ cool system according to the Metropolis scheme ♣ search lattice structure ♣ measure T dependence of quantities MC simulation steps: ◆ equilibriution: 50,000 sweeps ◆ measurement: 100,000 sweeps ◆ around the transition point: ~ 10 7 sweeps Anisotropy: 2 =10 Temperature skips: ◆ ◆ around T m : T=0.1J/k B T=0.001J/k B Monte Carlo simulations

To achieve equilibrium in reasonable time: To simulate the fluctuations sufficiently: A big system A small system Slow annealing Quick annealing We know the spatial and temporal scales only after the phenomenon is understood. A serious trade off! We don ’ t even know if the Hamiltonian is sufficient! Can call them approximations? We deal with Hamiltonian. Good computer! Good luck! Good physics! Simulation: theory or experiment?
