The Hypervolume Monte Carlo Model implements microcanonical simulations by sampling the position and momentum spaces. Although it is strictly proven in the thermodynamic limit, HVMC works well with a relatively small number of molecules. In contrast to other algorithms for Monte Carlo simulations, HVMC does not involve previous integration over the momentum space or demons. It is the full non-deterministic counter part of the NVE molecular dynamics method, also providing speed distribution functions. Moreover, the method allows a straightforward simulation of the ideal gas.
The Hypervolume Monte Carlo Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the jar file will run the program if Java is installed. You can modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within the map and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
