Monte Carlo step

  1. Mar 24, 2013 #1
    What is refered as one Monte Carlo step. In all books, papers people is written that was performed ##5 \cdot 10^{6}## MCS on all system sizes. Or the time is measured in MCS. But what is refered as one MCS? For example in MC simulation of Ising model what is a one MCS?

    I would expect that this is one (time) step in the simulation.

    Suppose that problem is MC simulation of 2d Ising model with ##L^2## lattice sites. What is the one time step of that simulation?

    Depends on the precision you want, I think.
