Monte Carlo Pure-model Calculations
Within statistical mechanics it is considered a very worthwhile occupation to study simplified and pure microscopic models of interacting many-body systems. These models are often constructed with the sole purpose of determining the minimum set of model features which are necessary to produce a given physical phenomenon, e.g. a phase transition. The simplicity of the models serves to make transparent the precise relationship between the mathematical structure of the model and its thermodynamic properties. In many cases, the original construction of the models has been governed by mathematical tractability rather than physical realism.
