Citing ALF


If you use ALF, please don’t forget to mention the package and the reference paper in any publication:

The auxillary-field QMC simulations were carried out with the ALF package [1] available at https://git.physik.uni-wuerzburg.de/ALF/ALF.

The package’s reference paper is:

[1] ALF Collaboration, The ALF (Algorithms for Lattice Fermions) project release 2.0. Documentation for the auxiliary-field quantum Monte Carlo code, SciPost Phys. Codebases 1 (2022), URL: https://scipost.org/SciPostPhysCodeb.1.

The corresponding BiBTeX entry:

@Article{10.21468/SciPostPhysCodeb.1,
        title={{The ALF (Algorithms for Lattice Fermions) project release 2.0.  Documentation for the auxiliary-field quantum Monte Carlo code}},
        author={F. F. Assaad and M. Bercx and F. Goth and A. Götz and J. S. Hofmann and E. Huffman and Z. Liu and F. Parisen Toldin and J. S. E. Portela and J. Schwab},
        journal={SciPost Phys. Codebases},
        pages={1},
        year={2022},
        publisher={SciPost},
        doi={10.21468/SciPostPhysCodeb.1},
        url={https://scipost.org/10.21468/SciPostPhysCodeb.1},
}
