About these proceedings

Introduction

Computer simulation studies in condensed matter physics form a rapidly developing field making sigificant contributions to important physical problems. The papers in this volume present new physical results and report new simulation techniques and new ways of interpreting simulational data, which cover simulation of both classical and quantum systems. Topics treated include - Multigrid and nonlocal updating methods in Monte Carlo simulations - Simulations of magnetic excitations and phase transitions - Simulations of aggregate formation - Molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo studies of polymers, polymer mixtures, and fluid flow - Quantum path integral and molecular dynamics studies of clusters and adsorbed layers on surfaces - New methods for simulating interacting boson and fermion systems - Simulational studies of electronic structure.
