By Werner Krauth

This booklet discusses the computational technique in smooth statistical physics in a transparent and available means and demonstrates its shut relation to different methods in theoretical physics. person chapters specialize in matters as various because the difficult sphere liquid, classical spin types, unmarried quantum debris and Bose-Einstein condensation. Contained in the chapters are in-depth discussions of algorithms, starting from uncomplicated enumeration the way to glossy Monte Carlo suggestions. The emphasis is on orientation, with dialogue of implementation info stored to a minimal. Illustrations, tables and concise revealed algorithms exhibit key info, making the fabric very obtainable. The ebook is totally self-contained and graphs and tables can without difficulty be reproduced, requiring minimum desktop code. such a lot sections start at an simple point and lead directly to the wealthy and hard difficulties of latest computational and statistical physics. The e-book might be of curiosity to quite a lot of scholars, lecturers and researchers in physics and the neighbouring sciences. An accompanying CD permits incorporation of the book's content material (illustrations, tables, schematic courses) into the reader's personal shows.
