Computational Nanoscience, Homework Assignment 4: Hard-Sphere Monte Carlo and Ising Model

By Elif Ertekin1, Jeffrey C Grossman2

1. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 2. Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Published on


In this assignment, you will explore the use of Monte Carlo techniques to look at (1) hard-sphere systems and (2) Ising model of the ferromagnetic-paramagnetic phase transition in two-dimensions. This assignment is to be completed following lecture 12 and using the "Hard Sphere Monte Carlo" and the "Ising Model" program in the Berkeley Computational Nanoscience Toolkit.
