The self-avoiding walk by Neal Noah Madras( Book )

37 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The self-avoiding walk is a mathematical model that has important applications in statistical mechanics and polymer science. In spite of its simple definition-a path on a lattice that does not visit the same site more than once-it is difficult to analyze mathematically. TheSelf-Avoiding Walkprovides the firstunified account of the known rigorous results for the self-avoiding walk, with particular emphasis on its critical behavior. Its goals are to give an account of the current mathematical understanding of the model, to indicate some of the applications of the concept in physics and in chemistry, and to give an introduction to some of the nonrigorous methods used in those fields. Topics covered in the bookinclude: the lace expansion and its application to the self-avoiding walk in more than four dimensions where most issues are now resolved; an introduction to the nonrigorous scaling theory; classical work of Hammersley and others; a new exposition of Kesten's pattern theorem and its consequences; a discussion of the decay of the two-point function and its relation to probabilistic renewal theory; analysis of Monte Carlo methods that have been used to study the self-avoiding walk; the role of the self-avoiding walk in physical and chemical applications. Methods from combinatorics, probability theory, analysis, and mathematical physics play important roles. The book is highly accessible to both professionals and graduate students in mathematics, physics, and chemistry
Lectures on Monte Carlo methods by Neal Noah Madras( Book )

11 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Monte Carlo methods form an experimental branch of mathematics that employs simulations driven by random number generators. These methods are often used when others fail, since they are much less sensitive to the "curse of dimensionality", which plagues deterministic methods in problems with a large number of variables. Monte Carlo methods are used in many fields: mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry, finance, computer science, and biology, for instance. This book is an introduction to Monte Carlo methods for anyone who would like to use these methods to study various kinds of mathemati
Monte Carlo methods by Neal Noah Madras( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the proceedings of the Workshop on Monte Carlo Methods held at The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, 1998). The workshop brought together researchers in physics, statistics, and probability. The papers in this volume-of the invited speakers and contributors to the poster session-represent the interdisciplinary emphasis of the conference. Monte Carlo methods have been used intensively in many branches of scientific inquiry. Markov chain methods have been at the forefront of much of this work, serving as the basis of many numerical studies in s
