Comment on “Finite-size scaling of the 5D Ising model"
Department of Physics, Delft University of Technology, P.O. Box 5046, 2600 GA Delft, The Netherlands
Accepted: 24 January 1997
In a recent letter , Mon addresses the disagreement between a renormalization prediction  and Monte Carlo (MC) analyses of the critical value of the Binder cumulant in the five-dimensional Ising model. Whereas there is firm evidence supporting his overall conclusion, namely that the discrepancy can be explained by strong finite-size corrections , there is no such evidence for Mon's identification of the nature of this correction. This is highly relevant for the discussion of this problem, because neglecting the dominant correction to scaling can evidently explain the incorrect conclusions drawn from previous simulations.
