An introduction to dynamic critical phenomena and cluster algorithms

Sokal, A (UCL and NYU)
Thursday 27 March 2008, 14:35-15:05

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


I give an introduction, aimed at mathematicians and computer scientists, to physics lore about dynamic critical phenomena. I then give an introduction to cluster algorithms, notably those of Swendsen--Wang and Chayes--Machta, which can potentially achieve significant reductions in critical slowing-down compared to local algorithms.
