We describe a generalized scheme for the probability-changing cluster (PCC) algorithm, based on the study of the finite-size scaling property of the correlation ratio, the ratio of the correlation functions with different distances. We apply this generalized PCC algorithm to the two-dimensional 6-state clock model. We also discuss the combination of the cluster algorithm and the extended ensemble method. We derive a rigorous broad histogram relation for the bond number. A Monte Carlo dynamics… CONTINUE READING
