    To study the role of topological defects in the three-dimensional classical Heisenberg model we have simulated this model on simple cubic lattices of size up to 803, using the single-cluster Monte Carlo update. Analysing the specific-heat data of these simulations, we obtain a very accurate estimate for the ratio of the specific-heat exponent with the correlation-length exponent, α/ν, from a usual finite-size scaling analysis at the critical coupling Kc. Moreover, by fitting the energy at Kc, we reduce the error estimates by another factor of two, and get a value of α/ν, which is comparable in accuracy to best field theoretic estimates.
