# Monte Carlo simulation of pure U(N) and SU(N) gauge theories on a simplicial lattice

## Description

Title of program: LATTICE Catalogue Id: ACFG_v1_0 Nature of problem Lattice gauge theory is usually formulated on a hypercubical lattice. However, in order to check universality it is necessary to formulate the theory on another lattice, e.g. the simplicial lattice. The method for mplementing the Monte Carlo algorithm for pure U(N) and SU(N) gauge theories on the recently introduced simplicial lattice is presented. The calculational technique for calculating all Wilson loops containing up to 13 triangles or 9 squares is explained.
