We prove that sign problems in the traditional approach to some lattice Yukawa models can be completely solved when the fermions are formulated using fermion bags and the bosons are formulated in the worldline representation. We prove this within the context of two examples of three dimensional models, symmetric under $U_L(1) \times U_R(1) \times Z_2 ({Parity})$ transformations, one involving staggered fermions and the other involving Wilson fermions. We argue that these models have interesting…

Fermion bag solutions to some sign problems in four-fermion field theories
Lattice four-fermion models containing N flavors of staggered fermions, that are invariant under Z2 and U(1) chiral symmetries, are known to suffer from sign problems when formulated using the
Fermion bag approach to fermion sign problems
The fermion bag approach is a new method to tackle fermion sign problems in lattice field theories. Using this approach it is possible to solve a class of sign problems that seem unsolvable by
Approaches to the sign problem in lattice field theory
Quantum field theories (QFTs) at finite densities of matter generically involve complex actions. Standard Monte-Carlo simulations based upon importance sampling, which have been producing
Nonperturbative aspects of supersymmetric quantum field theories in low dimensions
Simulations of supersymmetric field theories on the lattice with (spontaneously) broken supersymmetry suffer from a fermion sign problem related to the vanishing of the Witten index. We propose a
Fermion Bag Approach for Hamiltonian Lattice Field Theories
Two formidable bottlenecks to the applicability of QMC include: (1) the sign problem and (2) algorithmic update inefficiencies. In this thesis, I overcome both these difficulties for a class of
New developments for dual methods in lattice field theory at non-zero density
In recent years the complex action problem of lattice field theory at finite density was overcome for several system by mapping them to dual variables (flux lines and surfaces). We illustrate this
