Simulation of a Z(N) Bose System


Simulation of a Z(N) Bose System

Logo for Simulation of a Z(N) Bose System
This is a simulation of a spin model (a so-called Z(N) model) written in Java. The degrees of freedom of the system are the link variables each of whichconnect two neighboring grid points of a n-dimensional lattice (grid). The link variables U are complex numbers with an absolute value of 1 and a phase factorf, i.e. U = exp(i f). You can choose the number N of possible values for U (i.e. the group Z(N)) between 2 (the gauged Ising model) and 8. For a given N thephase factor can take the values f... More
