We present the loop algorithm, a new type of cluster algorithm that we recently introduced for the F model. Using the framework of Kandel and Domany, we show how to generalize the algorithm to the arrow flip symmetric 6 vertex model. We propose the principle of least possible freezing as the guide to choosing the values of free parameters in the algorithm. Finally, we briefly discuss the application of our algorithm to simulations of quantum spin systems. In particular, all necessary information is provided for the simulation of spin 1 2 Heisenberg and ¢x¢xz models. © 1993.
