Abstract

Two efficient methods are presented for performing exact microcanonical sampling of harmonic oscillators. It is shown that orthant sampling, which has previously been used to approximately sample microcanonical ensembles of anharmonic oscillators, is an exact sampling technique when applied to harmonic oscillators.
