We conclude our discussion of Monte Carlo methods with a brief review of the concepts covered in the three previous lectures. Then, the Kinetic Monte Carlo method is introduced, including discussions of Transition State Theory and basic KMC algorithms. A simulation of vacancy-mediated diffusion is provided as an example of KMC. Finally, a brief primer on random number generation is presented.
