Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the improvement of Kennedy-Kuti's linear accept/reject algorithm with different ordering criterion and modified Bhanot-Kennedy estimator of eΔH to reduce probability-bound violation. A new stochastic Monte Carlo algorithm to accommodate the probability-bound violation is proposed.
