Maximum Entropy Method Approach to θ Term

Abstract

In Monte Carlo simulations of lattice field theory with a θ term, one confronts the complex weight problem, or the sign problem. This is circumvented by performing the Fourier transform of the topological charge distribution P (Q). This procedure, however, still causes the flattening phenomenon of the free energy, which prevents one from studying the phase… (More)
