This book covers the techniques of computer simulations of disordered systems. It describes how one performs Monte Carlo simulations in condensed matter physics and deals with spin-glasses, percolating networks and the random field Ising model. Other methods mentioned are molecular dynamics and Brownian dynamics. Use of flow-diagrams enables the reader to grasp both the problem and its solution more readily. The book deals with highly complicated problems at a relatively simple level and will be most useful for advanced undergraduate and other courses in computational modelling.
