Book Description

June 29, 1989 0198556454 978-0198556459 Reprint
A first in its field, this book is both an introduction to computer simulation of liquids for upper level undergraduates and a how-to guide for specialists. The authors discuss the latest simulation techniques of molecular dynamics and the Monte Carlo methods as well as how to avoid common programming pitfalls. Theoretical concepts and practical programming advice are amply reinforced with examples of computer simulation in action and samples of Fortran code. The authors have also included a wide selection of programs and routines on microfiche to aid chemists, physicists, chemical engineers, and computer scientists, as well as graduate and advanced students in chemistry.

5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend it with no hesitation. May 16, 1999
It's the book to have if you want to learn computer simulation. It covers both Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics, from the start for the beginner. It also includes more advanced topics, but is definitely focused on studying fluids and not solids. The code is written in Fortran. If you program in C I suggest Rapaport's book, but this one is a definite must read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, needs an update August 5, 2000
One of the most influential books on MD and MC, a little outdated by the year, a second edition would be welcome.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better... April 10, 2000
By T. Jain
It is a good book in general, but i feel it assumes an intermediate to advanced level of knowledge of the subject.
Quite often the explanations are not elaborate enough to understand the method discussed. A slightly more elaborate treatment would make this a first rate book.

4.0 out of 5 stars a well written text July 31, 2009
This book is a clearly written textbook on a complex subject, but I do wish a new version if possible.
