    The behavior of a polymer chain confined between parallel plates a distance D apart is studied by Monte Carlo calculations of self-avoiding walks for up to 100 steps on the tetrahedral lattice. Scaling predictions of Daoud and de Gennes are tested using the data obtained; they are consistent...

    We report Monte Carlo results for the thermodynamic and structural properties of a mixture of equally sized hard discs that are characterized by a nonadditive collision diameter for particles belonging to unlike species. We calculated the phase-coexistence lines relative to fluid-fluid demixing...

    Since Bird [Phys. Fluids 6, 1518 (1963)] first proposed the idea of direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) techniques in order to model rarefied gas flows, a concern has been that his method does not provide a solution to the Boltzmann equation. Several simulation schemes have now been developed...

    We derived expressions for the scattering rates due to dislocations in pseudomorphic heterostructures. We gave explicit formulas for those scattering rates in the free and the confined states, depending on the initial carrier energy and on the component of the total wave vector parallel to the...

    A Monte Carlo method based on a density-of-states sampling is proposed for study of arbitrary statistical mechanical ensembles in a continuum. A random walk in the two-dimensional space of particle number and energy is used to estimate the density of states of the system; this density of states...
