AHB1, program description

SSE quantum Monte Carlo simulation of an isotropic S=1/2 Heisenberg model on a simple cubic lattice in 1, 2, or 3 dimensions. An efficient operator-loop update is used. The physical quantities calculated are: the internal energy, the specific heat, the uniform magnetic susceptibility, the spin stiffness, the staggered spin structure factor, and the staggered spin susceptibility.

Fortran program files

Complete simulation program

Include-file for 'ahb1.f'

Program for processing the output of 'ahb1.f'

Summary of usage

The full source code of the simulation program is in 'ahb1.f'. The program is compiled for a user-fixed dimensionality and lattice size, which are both set in the include-file 'ahb1.h'. The raw data generated by the simulation program AHB1 should be processed by the program AHB1RES (file 'ahb1res.f'), which calculates averages and statistical errors.
