Computer simulation studies in condensed-matter physics IV: proceedings of the fourth workshop, Athens, GA, USA, February 18-22, 1991

Front Cover
This book provides a broad overview of the recent developments in computer simulation studies of condensed-matter systems. The contributions present new physical results, simulation techniques and ways of interesting simulational data. They are grouped into three parts. The first part contains contributions dealing with simulational studies of classical systems with an introduction to new simulation techniques and special purpose computers. The second part discusses quantum systems including new results for strongly correlated electron and quantum spin systems believed to be important for the understanding of high-temperature superconductors. The third part comprises contributed presentations on the ordering in lipid monolayers, molecular dynamics, finite-size effects, histogram Monte Carlo studies of phase transitions, and nonlinear excitations.
