Abstract

I discuss a Monte Carlo method to study properties of a few magnetic impurities in an electron gas. Results for the magnetic susceptibility of a single impurity show the expected universal Kondo behavior at low temperatures. Other properties of a single impurity as well as properties of two magnetic impurities are discussed.
