Abstract

We compare the accuracy of the multicanonical procedure with that of transition-matrix models of static and dynamic communication system properties incorporating different acceptance rules. We find that for appropriate ranges of the underlying numerical parameters, algorithmically simple yet highly accurate procedures can be employed in place of the standard multicanonical sampling algorithm.
