Item description for Computer Simulation Studies in Condensed-Matter Physics XV: Proceedings of the Fifteenth Workshop, Athens, GA, USA (Springer Proceedings in Physics) by David P. Landau, David P. Landau, S. P. Lewis & H. B. Schuttler...
This book is a status report. It provides a broad overview of the most recent developments in the field, spanning a wide range of topical areas in simulational condensed matter physics. These areas include recent developments in simulations of classical statistical mechanics models, electronic structure calculations, quantum simulations, and simulations of polymers. Both new physical results and novel simulational and data analysis methods are presented. Some of the highlights of this volume include detailed accounts of recent theoretical developments in electronic structure calculations, novel quantum simulation techniques and their applications to strongly interacting lattice fermion models, and a wide variety of applications of existing methods as well as novel methods in the simulation of classical statistical mechanics models, including spin glasses and polymers.

More About David P. Landau, David P. Landau, S. P. Lewis & H. B. Schuttler
David P. Landau received a BA in Physics from Princeton University in 1963 and a Ph.D. in experimental Physics from Yale University in 1967. After doing postdoctoral research at the CNRS in Grenoble, France and teaching at Yale for a year he moved to the University of Georgia where he initiated a research program of Monte Carlo studies in statistical physics. He is currently the Distinguished Research Professor of Physics and founding Director of the Center for Simulational Physics at the University of Georgia. He has been teaching graduate courses in computer simulations since 1982. He has authored/co-authored more than 370 research publications and edited/co-edited more than 20 books. David Landau is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a past Chair of the Division of Computational Physics of the APS. He received the Jesse W. Beams award from SESAPS as well as Humboldt Fellowship and Humboldt Senior US Scientist awards. The University of Georgia named him a Senior Teaching Fellow in 1993. In 1998 he also became Adjunct Professor at the Helsinki University of Technology. In 1999 he was named a Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. In 2002 he received the Aneesur Rahman Prize for Computational Physics from the APS, and in 2003 the Lamar Dodd Award for Creative Research from the University of Georgia. In 2005 he became the Senior Guanbiao Distinguished Professor (Visiting) at Zhejiang U. in China. In 2007 he received the Nicholson Medal for Human Outreach from the APS. He is currently a Principal Editor for the journal Computer Physics Communications.
