Comparison of topology changing update algorithms
May 16, 2022
In modern lattice simulations, conventional update algorithms do not allow for tunneling between topological sectors at fine lattice spacings. We compare the viability of multiple less commonly used algorithms (metadynamics, instanton updates, and multiscale thermalization) with respect to proper sampling of all topological sectors in the Schwinger model. We briefly comment on the prospects of applying these methods to 4-dimensional SU(3) simulations.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
