Abstract

We study the dynamic critical behavior of the BFACF algorithm for generating self-avoiding walks with variable length and fixed endpoints. We argue theoretically, and confirm by Monte Carlo simulations in dimensions 2, 3, and 4, that the autocorrelation time scales as tau-int,N approximately zeta-4 approximately <N>4-nu.
