New One-Flavor Hybrid Monte Carlo Simulation Method for Lattice Fermions with gamma-five Hermiticity

By Kenji Ogawa


We propose a new method for Hybrid Monte Carlo (HMC) simulations with odd numbers of dynamical fermions on the lattice. It employs a different approach from polynomial or rational HMC. In this method, gamma-five hermiticity of the lattice Dirac operators is crucial and it can be applied to Wilson, domain-wall, and overlap fermions. We compare HMC simulations with two degenerate flavors and (1 + 1) degenerate flavors using optimal domain-wall fermions. The ratio of the efficiency, (number of accepted trajectories) / (simulation time), is about 3:2. The relation between pseudofermion action of chirally symmetric lattice fermions in four-dimensional(overlap) and five-dimensional(domain-wall) representation are also analyzed.Comment: 13 page
