Analyzing in detail the first corrections to the scaling hypothesis, we develop accelerated methods for the determination of critical points from finite size data. The output of these procedures is sequences of pseudo-critical points which rapidly converge towards the true critical points. The convergence is faster than that obtained with the fastest method available to date, which consists of estimating the location of the gap's closure (the so called phenomenological renormalization group). Having fast converging sequences at our disposal allows us to draw conclusions on the basis of shorter system sizes. This can be extremely important in particularly hard cases such as two-dimensional quantum systems with frustrations, or in Monte Carlo simulations when the sign problem occurs. After reviewing the most efficient techniques available to date, we test the effectiveness of the proposed methods both analytically on the …
