Questions and Remarks:

  • Q: In question 4, we need to find the correlation function defined as a mean, but it's not very clear over what this mean in taken; I would take it over the thermal equilibrium but we're studying the dynamics so I'm confused.
  • A: In question 4, it is precised : «You have the freedom to chose the initial condition (e.g. fixed direction, or distributed with the equilibrium distribution), but be consistent: choose the same for the analytical computation and for the numerical evaluation.» It means that the randomness to average when measuring C(tt) is twofold:
    - in the initial condition, drawn from an initial distribution (fixed spin, or spin drawn from the equilbrium distribution, as mentionned)
    - and in the dynamics (i.e. the runs of your algorithm).

  • Q: in Q4, what do you mean by tranfer matrix? Are you referring to the Markov matrix Mab = p(b->a)?
  • A: indeed, we called this matrix the Markov matrix in Tutorial this year. It is called (up to a transposition) the transfer matrix in the SMAC book.
