Monte Carlo Renormalization Group and the Three Dimensional Ising Model
Precise computations of critical properties of the three dimensional Ising model are available from computations on the ICL DAP (Edinburgh) and the Santa Barbara Ising processor. The computations however are not complete because they do not include reliable information on the correction to scaling exponent. The Monte Carlo Renormalization group is used in the Scottish computations; finite size scaling is used at Santa Barbara. The ideas behind the Monte Carlo Renormalization Group are explained, along with an analysis of the errors involved, to the extent they are presently known.
