A broad overview of recent developments in computer simulation studies of condensed matter systems is provided in this book. Both classical and quantum systems are discussed. The contributions present new physical results and describe new simulation techniques and novel ways of interpreting simulational data. Topics covered include: - parallelization and vectorization - cellular automata, fractals and aggregation - damage spreading - molecular dynamics of proteins and rotating molecules in solids - quantum Monte Carlo studies of strongly correlated electron systems
