In this lecture, we continue our discussion of Monte Carlo simulation. Examples from Hard Sphere Monte Carlo simulations based on the Metropolis algorithm and from Grand Canonical Monte Carlo simulations of fullerene growth on spherical surfaces are presented. A discussion of meaningful statistics, result interpretation, and error analysis is presented as well.
