About this Textbook

Monte Carlo Simulation in Statistical Physics deals with the computer simulation of thermodynamic properties of many-body condensed-matter systems that use random numbers generated by a computer in physics and chemistry. It describes the theoretical background of several variants of these Monte Carlo methods and gives a systematic course by which newcomers can learn to perform such simulations and to analyze their results. This third edition has been updated and a new chapter on some important recent developments of the Monte Carlo methodology was added.
