New Monte Carlo methods are presented for efficient simulation of nonequilibrium processes in spin systems. The elementary moves are flips of connected sets of spins (clusters), subject to constraints. Use of a constraint on the cluster size gives rapid short-wavelength equilibration and accelerated diffusive long-wavelength kinetics; additional constraints can enforce local conservation laws.
