American Journal of Physics
written by Jan Tobochnik, Harvey Gould, and Jonathan Machta
Several Monte Carlo algorithms and applications that are useful for understanding the concepts of temperature and chemical potential are discussed. The authors then introduce a generalization of the demon algorithm that measures the chemical potential and is suitable for simulating systems with variable particle number.
