J. Lekner, Am. J. Phys., 50 (2), 161-163 (1981).
The van der Waals equation of state together with Maxwell’s equal area rule, leads to a transcendental equation for the densities of the two coexisting phases. Gibbs solved that this…

D. Landau, S. Tsai, and M. Exler, Am. J. Phys., 72 (10), 1294-1302 (2004).
The authors describe a Monte Carlo algorithm for sampling the density of states directly by doing a random walk in energy space. The probability of a microstate is computed at any…
