Nature of problem:The use of nonperturbative computation techniques to study strongly interacting matter requires the discretization of the continuous space- time on a 4-dimensional lattice. Then the quantum field theory is formally equivalent to a statistical mechanical model that can be simulated on a computer by Monte Carlo methods. This program is a microtasked implementation of the multihit Metropolis algorithm on a CRAY Y-MP multiprocessor system. It calculates the Wilson loops of size up to L/2 x L/2 for L**4 lattices for SU(3) gauge theory with the Wilson action. | ||

Solution method:SU(3) gauge theory is simulated on a hypercubical lattice by Monte Carlo methods with the multihit Metropolis algorithm on a microtasking vector computer, the CRAY Y-MP C90/16256. | ||

Restrictions:For the lattice of L sites in each of the space-time directions we need storage for 4L**4 SU(3) matrices, or 4L**4 x 18 real variables. This is the only restriction of the program. | ||

Running time:The test run on a 16**4 lattice for SU(3) with 40 Monte Carlo iterations calculating the Wilson loops up to size 8 x 8 took 8.2 seconds for execution on the CRAY Y-MP C90/16. This is 19 times faster than the old record on the CRAY X-MP/4 [1]. | ||
