Significant parts of this research were done using resources provided by the Open Science Grid [1, 2], which is supported by the National Science Foundation award 1148698, and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. We are also appreciative of XSEDE  resources (Stampede), where other significant computations for this study were performed.

We obtain nonperturbative results on the sine-Gordon model using the lattice field technique. In particular, we employ the Fourier accelerated hybrid Monte Carlo algorithm for our studies. We find the critical temperature of the theory based autocorrelation time, as well as the finite size scaling of the “thickness” observable used in an earlier lattice study by Hasenbusch et al.
