Editorial Review
From Book News, Inc. , November 1, 1996

A unified presentation of the computational tools that are currently used to study the equilibrium properties, and in particular, the phase behavior of molecular and supramolecular substances. This book explains the physics behind the "recipes" of molecular simulation for materials science. The implementation of simulation methods is illustrated in pseudocodes and their practical use in the case studies used in the text. Examples are included that highlight current applications, and the codes of the case studies are available on the World Wide Web. No prior knowledge of computer simulation in assumed, but the book is aimed at readers who are active in computer simulation or are planning to become so.
