Description

We report lattice simulations of $\phi^4_2$ and $O(N)\,\phi^4$ models, performed by means a Monte Carlo method based on the all-order strong coupling expansion (worm algorithm). The investigation of the non–perturbative features of the $\phi^4$ continuum limit in two dimensions lead us to the result $g/\mu^2 = 11.15 \pm 0.06_{stat} \pm 0.03_{syst}$ for the critical coupling. Furthermore we present a study of the scaling behaviour of worm and loop size in two-dimensional $O(N)$ model (non-linear $\sigma$-model) and three-dimensional $\phi^4\,O(N)$ model.
