Simulations on Infinite-Size Lattices

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

We introduce a Monte Carlo method, as a modification of existing cluster algorithms, which allows simulations directly on systems of infinite size, and for quantum models also at β = ∞. All two-point functions can be obtained, including dynamical information. When the number of iterations is increased, correlation functions at larger distances become available. Limits q-textgreater0 and ω-textgreater0 can be approached directly. As examples we calculate spectra for the d = 2 Ising model and for Heisenberg quantum spin ladders with two and four legs.
