Configurational Temperature, Verification of Monte Carlo Simulations

Evans, Denis; Butler, B D; Ayton, Gary; Jepps, Owen G


[Unable to convert symbols, please look at PDF version for symbols] A new diagnostic that is useful for checking the algorithmic correctness of Monte Carlo computer programs is presented. The check is made by comparing the Boltzmann temperature, which is input to the program and used to accept or reject moves, with a configurational temperature k T B config [unable to convert symbol, please see PDF]. Here, F is the potential energy of the system and [symbal]represents the dimensionless gradient...[Show more]
