Abstract

We have developed a parallel algorithm that allows us to enumerate the number of self-avoiding polygons on the square lattice to perimeter length 110. We have also extended the series for the first 10 area-weighted moments and the radius of gyration to 100. Analysis of the resulting series yields very accurate estimates of the connective constant λ= 2.638 158 530 31 (3) (biased) and the critical exponent α = 0.5000001(2) (unbiased). In addition, we obtain very accurate estimates for the leading amplitudes confirming to a high degree of accuracy various predictions for universal amplitude combinations.
