M. Michel, J. Mayer, W. Krauth Event-chain Monte Carlo for classical continuous spin models EPL 112 20003 (2015)



We apply the event-chain Monte Carlo algorithm to classical continuum spin models on a lattice and clarify the condition for its validity. In the two-dimensional XY model, it outperforms the local Monte Carlo algorithm by two orders of magnitude, although it remains slower than the Wolff cluster algorithm. In the three-dimensional XY spin glass at low temperature, the event-chain algorithm is far superior to the other algorithms.
