    Abstract

    We study the dynamic critical behavior of the worm algorithm for the two- and three-dimensional Ising models, by Monte Carlo simulation. The autocorrelation functions exhibit an unusual three-time-scale behavior. As a practical matter, the worm algorithm is slightly more efficient than the Swendsen-Wang algorithm for simulating the two-point function of the three-dimensional Ising model.
