Monte Carlo tests of stochastic Loewner evolution (SLE) predictions were carried out for a two-dimensional (2D) self-avoiding walk (SAW). The SAW was simulated using the pivot algorithm. The simulations of the SAW walk in a half plane showed that the distributions of two particular random variables related to the walk agreed well with the exact distributions of SLE8/3 for the random variables. This supported the conjuncture that the scaling limit of the SAW was SLE8/3.
