Testing trivializing maps in the Hybrid Monte Carlo algorithm

By Georg P. Engel and Stefan Schaefer

Abstract

We test a recent proposal to use approximate trivializing maps in a field theory to speed up Hybrid Monte Carlo simulations. Simulating the CPN − 1CPN−1 model, we find a small improvement with the leading order transformation, which is however compensated by the additional computational overhead. The scaling of the algorithm towards the continuum is not changed. In particular, the effect of the topological modes on the autocorrelation times is studied
