Abstract:One of the reasons why the Monte Carlo results do not accurately reproduce the dynamic exponent of the system is that a key assumption is found not to hold true. Equating Monte Carlo time to real time is believed to reproduce relaxational dynamics, but this is found not to be the case for the vortex loop model. A generalization of the standard Monte Carlo algorithm is proposed to deal with situations where the assumption breaks down, the study of which is ongoing.
