Research Abstract 
Topology is expected to play an important role in the dynamics of QCD. It is an important issue to study nonperturbatively a topological term. In this research, we study CP (N1) model with topological term by means of Monte Carlo simulations. In order to perform simulations for the complex Bo1tzmann weight, we adopt a method by which topological charge distribution P (Q) is measured. This method produces in some cases the flattening behaviors of the free energy as a function of theta. We find that the flattening is attributed to errors in calculating P (Q). We also compute the CP (N1) model with fixed point action in order to study the continuum feature. For CP (3) case, P (Q), free energy and correlation lengths show very nice scaling behaviors.
