Monte Carlo Simulations of Critical Phenomena in Physics

  • Number of credits 7.5 credits
  • Level Master’s level
  • Starting Spring Term 2023

About the course

Monte Carlo - the statistical basis. Monte Carlo simulation of a classical gas. The Ising model: mean field theory, energy-entropy arguments, Monte Carlo simulations, universality. Simulation techniques: 2D arrays in C, boundary conditions, queues, fast Fourier transforms. Simple stochastic models: site percolation, random walk, self-organized criticality, and complex networks.

The course can also be included in the subject area of computational science & engineering.
