Abstract We benchmark event-chain Monte Carlo (ECMC) algorithms for tethered hard-disk dipoles in two dimensions in view of application of ECMC to water models in molecular simulation. We characterize the rotation dynamics of dipoles through the integrated autocorrelation times of the polarization. The non-reversible straight, reflective, forward, and Newtonian ECMC algorithms are all event-driven, and they differ only in their update rules at event times. They realize considerable speedups with respect to the local reversible Metropolis algorithm. We also find significant speed differences among the ECMC variants. Newtonian ECMC appears particularly well-suited for overcoming the dynamical arrest that has plagued straight ECMC for three-dimensional dipolar models with Coulomb interactions.
