The Local Hamiltonian Monte-Carlo Method in 1+1 Dimensions Applied to Field-Theoretic Lattice Models
In this contribution I review some recent results [1,2] concerning the application of the local Hamiltonian Monte Carlo method  to field theoretic models of fermions, gauge bosons and scalars on the lattice in 1+1 dimensions. The lattice regularization is at the moment the most attractive possibility to study non-perturbative aspects of field theories. The local Hamiltonian method is very efficient to study low dimensional models with fermions since in the Monte Carlo procedure both bosons and fermions are handled locally.
