Quantum renormalization of high-energy excitations in the 2D Heisenberg model

We find using Monte Carlo simulations of the spin-1/2 2D square lattice nearest neighbour quantum Heisenberg antiferromagnet that the high-energy peak locations at (pi, 0) and (pi/2, pi/2) differ by about 6%, (pi/2, pi/2) being the highest This is a deviation from linear spin wave theory which predicts equal magnon energies at these points.
