We report large systematic errors in Monte Carlo simulations of the tri-critical Blume-Capel model using single spin Metropolis updating. The error, manifest as a 20% asymmetry in the magnetisation distribution, is traced to the interplay between strong triplet correlations in the shift register random number generator and the large tricritical clusters. The effect of these correlations is visible only when the system volume is a multiple of the random number generator lag parameter. No such… CONTINUE READING
