Monte Carlo simulation in statistical physics : an introduction by
K Binder(
Book
)
64 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Monte Carlo method is a computer simulation method which uses random numbers to simulate statistical fluctuations. The method is used to model complex systems with many degrees of freedom. Probability distributions for these systems are generated numerically and the method then yields numerically exact information on the models. Such simulations may be used to see how well a model system approximates a real one or to see how valid the assumptions are in an analytical theory. A short and systematic theoretical introduction to the method forms the first part of this book. The second part is a practical guide with plenty of examples and exercises for the student. Problems treated by simple sampling (random and selfavoiding walks, percolation clusters, etc.) and by importance sampling (Ising models etc.) are included, along with such topics as finitesize effects and guidelines for the analysis of Monte Carlo simulations. The two parts together provide an excellent introduction to the theory and practice of Monte Carlo simulations

The Monte Carlo method in condensed matter physics by
K Binder(
Book
)
31 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and German and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The "Monte Carlo method" is a method of computer simulation of a system with many degrees of freedom, and thus it has widespread applications in science. It takes its name from the use of random numbers to simulate statistical fluctuations in order to numerically gen erate probability distributions (which cannot otherwise be known explicitly, since the systems considered are so complex). The Monte Carlo method then yields numerically exact information on "model systems". Such simulations serve two purposes: one can check the extent to which a model system approximates a real system; or one may check the validity of approximations made in analytical theories. This book summarizes recent progress obtained in the implementation of this method and with the general analysis of results, and gives concise reviews of recent applications. These applications include simulations of growth processes far from equilibrium, interfacial phenomena, quantum and classical fluids, polymers, quantum problems on lattices, and random systems

Polymers in confined environments by
S Granick(
Book
)
10 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The rapidlydeveloping field of confined polymers is reviewed in this volume. Special emphasis is given to polymer aspects of this interdisciplinary problem. Taken together, the contributions offer ample evidence of how the field of polymer science continues to evolve with the passage of time. The topics revolve around the tendency of surfaces to impede chain relaxation and to stimulate new sorts of chain organization. These have been implicated in a variety of spectacular phenomena. Here is a listing of authors and affiliations: K. Binder (Johannes GutenbergUniversitt Mainz, Germany); P.G. de Gennes (College de France, France); E.P. Giannelis, R. Krishnamoorti, and E. Manias (Cornell University and University of Houston, USA); G.S. Grest (Exxon Research and Engineering Co., USA); L. Leger, E. Raphael, and H. Hervet (College de France, France); S.Q. Wang (Case Western Reserve University, USA)

Cohesion and structure of surfaces by
K Binder(
Book
)
16 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the past fifteen years there has been a dramatic increase in the number of different surfaces whose structures have been determined experimentally. For example, whereas in 1979 there were only 25 recorded adsorption structures, to date there are more than 250. This volume is therefore a timely review of the stateoftheart in this dynamic field. Chapter one contains a compilation of the structural data base on surfaces within a series of tables that allows direct comparison of structural parameters for related systems. Experimental structural trends amongst both clean surfaces and adsorbate systems are highlighted and discussed. The next chapter outlines the successes of local density functional theory in predicting the relaxations and reconstructions of clean metal and semiconductor surfaces, and the behaviour of adsorbates such as hydrogen, oxygen and alkali elements on metal surfaces, thereby explaining some of the experimental trends observed within the database. These ab initio density functional calculations are of ground state properties at the absolute zero of temperature. Chapter three provides an introduction to finite temperature effects in a pedagogical review of current statistical mechanical treatments of phase transitions at surfaces, many of which display the prominent role of fluctuations or nonmean field behaviour. The final chapter discusses the relationship of the reactivity of a surface to its morphology and composition, which is particularly relevant to a fundamental understanding of catalysis
