    A detailed Monte Carlo simulation of the gamma Compton scattering process was performed in order to better understand the global phenomena and to improve the interpretation of a γ-Compton densitometer's response. The experimental set up consists of a mono-energetic gamma ray source (137Cs), a...

    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...

    A Monte Carlo convolution method for simulating time-correlated single photon counting data is presented. The random convolution automatically produces the Poisson statistics of the real experiment. The new simulation technique offers realistic treatment of various aspects of the single photon...
