Bold Diagrammatic Monte Carlo Study of $φ^4$ Theory    [PDF]

Ali Davody
By incorporating renormalization procedure into Bold Diagrammatic Monte Carlo (BDMC), we propose a method for studying quantum field theories in the strong coupling regime. BDMC essentially samples Feynman diagrams using local Metropolis-type updates and does not suffer from the sign problem. Applying the method to three dimensional $\phi^4$ theory, we analyze the strong coupling limit of the theory and confirm the existence of a nontrivial IR fixed point in agreement with prior studies. Interestingly, we find that working with bold correlation functions as building blocks of the Monte Carlo procedure, renders the scheme convergent and no further resummation method is needed.
